Hey, is meghano a millionaire now?
Someone wrote me a very condescending reply message on a mailing list. I replied with a very, very irritated and critical response. I’m now sitting here staring at my inbox waiting for the response.
Keep in mind that there is a pretty wide circle of people in the Tumblr user Venn Diagram who:
I have my thoughts about whether or not users might “grow out of” Tumblr as a usual occurrence, but a bunch of people have been heavy daily users for 3-5 years at this point. The earliest “sunset” for a failed acquisition division has been about 3 years, minus a few outliers. And there’s little risk that Tumblr will become moribund just because Yahoo! doesn’t innovate the product - Tumblr hasn’t iterated significantly in years except for some really clunky code editor changes. Doing LESS than what Tumblr itself did might be a benefit!
So, all things considered, there’s no reason to think that doom is imminently upon us. In the worst case scenario, a huge chunk of Tumblr hasn’t even reached halftime of their tenure here, if they’d prefer to stay.
Oh, and btw, no one gives a fuck about associating themselves with Yahoo! or any of that “hip factor” nonsense, so you can bury that notion right now.
