We’ve finally made our tumblr debut! Check out this excerpt from Charlie’s interview with tumblr founder and CEO, David Karp.
Welcome to Tumblr, Charlie!
Also, this, by the way, is our new tagline: “Tumblr: Virtually no Trolls!”
This week on Here’s The Thing, Alec Baldwin sits down with Thom Yorke, the front man of Radiohead. He talks with Alec about what he does before going on stage and how he and his bandmates have been able to stick together since they were teenagers.
Saving for later!
Ask Frank about my
awesome dancing at a Radiohead concert in NJ. Better yet, ask the band.
Eine kleine Rubrik in diesem Blog heißt Lieblings-Tumblr. Dabei stellen wir besondere Blogs vor, die die Tumblr-Technologie nutzen. Höchste Zeit auch mal die Frage zu stellen, wer dahinter steckt. In der heutigen Ausgabe der Süddeutschen Zeitung gibt es einen Text zu Tumblr.
Ach ja, das war vom letzten Freitag. Danke noch mal an die SZ. Das nächste große Ding sagt sehr bald Tschüss zum Kotti und zieht nach Mitte. Ick freu ma.
What she said!
Read the stories behind the pictures, straight from Iraq war photographers: “[This] picture lived its life that I could control very little of – printed, celebrated, discussed and taken out of and back into context. Some people wanted to know what happened to the girl, others were interested in what the doctor in the picture felt while holding a child.”
It’s been 10 years since U.S.-led forces waged war in Iraq. In this collection of some of Reuters iconic images from the conflict, the photographers provide a personal account of the events they captured.
I’m in The Wall Street Journal today under the Style section. I asked to be put under the Fluffy section but the editors informed me that section did not yet exist.
Animal birth control? Only in Trenton. Only from PETA.
NJ.com is giving me exactly what I want from their Tumblr.
Weird “only in NJ” goodness.
Today, we want to defend Tumblr, after it was cowardly hacked yesterday.
Like any internet community, it is not without its flaws. Here, the hackers’ comments came uncomfortably close to a lot of Tumblr users’ excesses. It is sometimes a deeply silly place, keen on self-congratulation. It is also largely decadent, and because it is made of millions of fallible human beings, it’s not always terribly original or profound. But that does not mean it does not have the capacity to be those things, and it often is.
Tumblr is where I go to laugh, but it also a fantastic place to learn: this is where I first read about Trayvon Martin, for example. It often hosts some of the most eloquent and nuanced conversations about society, from gender to race to equality and social justice. It is a community that gives and shares and supports its own – only last night, I witnessed people organise a whip-round for a fellow Tumblr user who needed to get out of an abusive situation fast.
It can be a brilliant place, because it is a lot more than the sum of is parts: you get out of it what you put in. Not many sites can give you all of that and a gif of Chris Evans punching a bag in slo-mo. And for that reason, I’ll remain onboard. No contest.
Great piece on Cif right now…
Gwyneth and Uma and SJP, oh my!
