I really hope Yahoo doesn’t fuck up Tumblr like it’s fucked up … well, every single thing it’s ever touched in the history of the universe.
Ain’t that the truth. They (Yahoo!) don’t realize they’re an internet company. They think they are a media company.
What I don’t get is what their motivation is. I like tumblr BECAUSE there are no ads. I don’t know what their business model is (unless it’s “hang in there until someone buys us for a shit load of money”). I would pay something in the range of $5/month to have tumblr as it is, with no ads, no censorship, and no confusing new list of “features” or “integration” with the rest of Yahoo’s offering.
