Habemus blogger.

L'esclamazione che comprò Tumblr 20.05.13

La vera notizia non è l'acquisto di Tumblr da parte di Yahoo!, neppure la reazione isterica di 108 milioni di blogger e neanche la dichiarazione di Melissa Meyer che assicurà che non faranno casini con la piattaforma di microblogging più rilevante al mondo.
La vera notizia è che Yahoo! abbia un miliardo e rotti di dollari cash da spendere.

Mr. Tumblr 30.01.12

David Karp, fondatore di Tumblr, si racconta sul Guardian.

David Karp, the founder of the blogging platform Tumblr, was 17 when he decided to cut the apron strings and move to Tokyo. With a smattering of Japanese and a sharp eye for computer code, the impatient Manhattan teenager embarked on a period of self-discovery. "I was holed up in the middle of this world where it was just me on the internet," Karp recalls. Within weeks, he had fine-tuned his computer skills and cooled on the idea of building robots. He wanted to be an entrepreneur. But there was one small problem: his voice.

Il Tumblr di Obama 24.10.11

La campagna presidenziale di Obama si apre al microblogging.

It's nice to meet you.

There are lots of reasons we're excited to be launching the Obama 2012 campaign's new Tumblr today. But mostly it’s because we're looking at this as an opportunity to create something that's not just ours, but yours, too.

We'd like this Tumblr to be a huge collaborative storytelling effort-a place for people across the country to share what's going on in our respective corners of it and how we're getting involved in this campaign to keep making it better.

It's possible because of Tumblr's submission feature.

You can send us a few paragraphs about how your latest phonebanking gig went or why you’re in for 2012. Share the latest chart you saw that made you go "woah." Ask a question. Upload a photo of 2012 t-shirts or signs you see out in the wild. Pass along jokes, particularly if they're funny. And if you're among the Tumbl-inclined, send us posts you've published on your own Tumblr that we should look at re-blogging.

There will be trolls among you: this we know. We ask only that you remember that we're people-fairly nice ones-and that your mother would want you to be polite.

Thanks, Tumblr. We're looking forward to getting to know you.
