Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.
Today, we invite you to join us in BusinessTown, an illustrated world lampooning the tech scene – while also nailing it on the head.
Welcome to BusinessTown is a single-topic Tumblr “attempting to explain our highly intangible, deeply disruptive, data-driven venture-backed, gluten-free economic meritocracy to the uninitiated.”
Seemingly inspired by the illustrations of children’s author Richard Scarry, BusinessTown is populated by anthropomorphic characters with emerging job titles, contextualised with bleeding-edge buzzwords that have evolved in a post-LinkedIn ecosystem.
In short, some of these characters will be so familiar to anyone involved in the digital creative industry, it might make you cringe.
