FINALS IS OVER (At least for me :-D )
FINALS IS OVER (At least for me :-D )
I’m delighted to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to acquire Tumblr!
We promise not to screw it up. Tumblr is incredibly special and has a great thing going. We will operate Tumblr independently. David Karp will remain CEO. The product roadmap, their team, their wit and irreverence will all remain the same as will their mission to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve. Yahoo! will help Tumblr get even better, faster.
Tumblr has built an amazing place to follow the world’s creators. From art to architecture, fashion to food, Tumblr hosts 105 million different blogs. With more than 300 million monthly unique visitors and 120,000 signups every day, Tumblr is one of thefastest-growing media networks in the world. Tumblr sees 900 posts per second (!) and 24 billion minutes spent onsite each month. On mobile, more than half of Tumblr’s users are using the mobile app, and those users do an average of 7 sessions per day. Tumblr’s tremendous popularity and engagement among creators, curators and audiences of all ages brings a significant new community of users to the Yahoo! network. The combination of Tumblr+Yahoo! could grow Yahoo!’s audience by 50% to more than a billion monthly visitors, and could grow traffic by approximately 20%.
In terms of working together, Tumblr can deploy Yahoo!’s personalization technology and search infrastructure to help its users discover creators, bloggers, and content they’ll love. In turn, Tumblr brings 50 billion blog posts (and 75 million more arriving each day) to Yahoo!’s media network and search experiences. The two companies will also work together to create advertising opportunities that are seamless and enhance user experience.
As I’ve said before, companies are all about people. Getting to know the Tumblr team has been really amazing. I’ve long held the view that in all things art and design, you can feel the spirit and demeanor of those who create them. That’s why it was no surprise to me that David Karp is one of the nicest, most empathetic people I’ve ever met. He’s also one of the most perceptive, capable entrepreneurs I’ve worked with. His respect for Tumblr’s community of creators is awesome, and I’m absolutely delighted to have him and his entire team join Yahoo!.
Both Tumblr and Yahoo! share a vision to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas by focusing on users, design — and building experiences that delight and inspire the world every day.
^^^^ That’s what she says and she better mean it. Tumblr is like family, and you don’t fuck with family.
This is why I am wary of certain translations (NIV/NET/etc) of the KJV of the bible. How does “effeminate” get translated to “homosexual”, let alone “passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals,”?? Clearly someone took a free pass to make assumptions of what the original KJV meant. THIS is how religion gets co-opted, this is how understanding gets muddied. I am not questioning God, but I am certainly questioning the people who are creating these new translations. #bible #confusion #SomeoneSchoolMe #words #homosexual #religion #LostInTranslation #AmIWrong? #artmuffin

Don’t Fuck With Tumblr
She claims her heart
Is like a foster child
That’s passed around
So the owner can just
Reap the benefits that
Comes along with having
Her heart in their possession
Like a hole in an hourglass
Time between us was wasted
And now we must move on
Erase the past, and the feelings too
Delete the text messages that includes
History of Me and You
Even though we was never official
I Will Always Miss You
I seriously can’t wait for this semester to end. It’s tiring every fucking time I turn my head I have assignments and projects and tests. Deadass come next Friday i will lock myself in my room, close the windows, pull down the shades, close the curtains, and just lay in my bed. Enjoying doing nothing.
Fuck You College.
