TUMBLR AND IT’S FUTURE IS AT STAKE HERE
SIGN AND REBLOG IF YOU WANT TO SAVE TUMBLR FROM YAHOO
I think maybe we’re overreacting a bit here. Yahoo wants to buy Tumblr because it wants to connect with a younger audience (and this is the social network within their price range), not because they want to overhaul the whole thing.
Hell, with Yahoo’s help we may be able to finally get some of the functionality we’ve been clamoring for for ages now.
Better Yahoo than Facebook, which is the other rumor. We don’t want another FB, do we? Invasive, intrusive, taking possession of all our stuff, always bitching at us to connect to other things, wanting us to use our real names? It would destroy Tumblr.
In the past two weeks the girl has managed to get below 20 points on a test (yes, out of 100) and forget entirely about a quiz the professor kept reminding us to take online.
She’s been to a couple different colleges and at least one trade school, all for different things, none of which she’s finished. She strikes me as one of those people who tries something, wiffs it completely, and instead of buckling down and trying again, bounces to the next thing. It’ll be interesting to see if she finishes this degree or not.
