I’m still not sure how I feel about this, but I’m optimistic. More ads, here we come!
If Yahoo! hadn’t bought Tumblr, there would no longer be Tumblr.
I sincerely doubt that Yahoo’s stupid enough to destroy one of the largest online producers of original content. Yeah, there are probably going to be some changes. There may be some ads on the site now or whatever. But so the fuck what? If it means that Tumblr isn’t going to go bankrupt, then I certainly think it’s worth it. Please get over your internet elitism, guys.
Well, this certainly changes things. As long as they don’t pull a Flickr, this might work out for the best.
Breaking: Yahoo’s board of directors has approved a $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr, according to reports by the Wall Street Journal.

Sixty people were injured, five of them critically, and rail traffic from New York to Boston was shut down after a Metro-North commuter train derailed and plowed into a second train Friday in Fairfield, Conn., Gov. Dan Malloy said.
Regarding this whole Amy’s Baking Company disaster…
A paraphrase from one anonymous user regarding the infamous “Quiptxt Day” incident:
- Saturday: No one knows about your restaurant.
- Sunday: Kitchen Nightmares (and subsequently, the entire Internet) finds your restaurant and everyone knows about your restaurant.
- Monday: You have no restaurant.
There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?
