On Penny Arcade, Exploitation, and the Myth of the Do-Everything Rock Star

, ,

Christopher Buecheler on Penny Arcade’s really sad job posting earlier this week:

You don’t want that job. There is no upside to taking it. You’ll be worked like a dog and paid like shit while you’re doing it, while Khoo, Krahulik, and Holkins continue cashing their trade show checks.

Robert Khoo is a brilliant businessman, and such businessmen excel by finding the sucker and exploiting him or her.

Don’t be that sucker.

Never be that sucker.
