    very nice job.

  3. I have an appreciation for infographics, and the design of this one is great. Additionally, the content is humorous – but it’s totally wrong and I have somewhat of a problem with it.

    To insult “consumers” the way you have… “mindlessly purchases products sold by hip startup” is pretty brash. Without consumers, startups (much like udemy) wouldn’t have a business. As much as none of us in the startup world want to admit it, they are at the top of the food chain and I think the way you’ve represented them here is insulting.

I would argue that they’re not ubiquitous. They’re hard to find, take dilligent work to please, and are a true treasure. I know this is meant to be a joke, but my suggestion for next time – poke fun internally, not at the one thing that makes your business tick.
