What a great post from Marco Arment about his former boss and the Yahoo! Tumblr acquisition.
I briefly chatted to Marco Arment at Webstock a couple of years back and have enjoyed pretty much every product, podcast or website he’s been involved with. He’s a smart, sensible guy and richly deserves his reward for what sounds like a lot of hard work. And it sounds like David Karp does too.
I get a lot of enjoyment out of Tumblr. I’ve met a few interesting people online thanks to the service. It’s funny to joke that Yahoo couldn’t really fuck up the management of Tumblr much more than it already is, but I hope they just leave it the hell alone.
Actually, titles on every kind of post would be nice. Put that in please, Yahoo.
