Fiverr's new recruiting ad promises to literally work you to death

It's not a parody, apparently: "You eat a coffee for lunch. You follow through on your follow through. Sleep deprivation is your drug of choice. You might be a doer. In doers we trust." As Nick Mamatas says, "Back in the 1990s, this ad would be the result of billboard liberation."

  3. If I understand the business model, fiverr doesn't promise to work you to death, but to facilitate your working yourself to death, while taking their cut of the proceeds.

  4. As a design freelancer, Fiverr is my sworn enemy and mortal nemesis.
