People despondent to find out David Karp is suddenly rich today, not knowing that he’s been rich the entire time because he comes from a rich family
The best part about this story (really, why read any further) is to see that David Karp and Marco Arment got fired from doing a simple from-scratch CMS buildout that ended up being built on Movable Type in the end. Unbelievably, people gave them even more money down the road.

God, I love this Retro Report series →
This Retro Report video lays out how limited scientific studies in the 1980s led to predictions that a generation of children would be damaged for life. Those predictions turned out to be wrong. It’s like the opposite of how we manage the news cycle. Let’s follow up on bold claims… 20-30 years later! Maybe all of our news today should be dedicated to reviewing published...
Why is New York Magazine doing a cover story on private space travel? Are there prep schools up there?
Can’t wait until the dashboard background turns Yahoo! purple

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. Cool life
Keep in mind that there is a pretty wide circle of people in the Tumblr user Venn Diagram who: Are more or less happy with Tumblr the way that it is Have nothing specific to fear with a change of management or ownership, or even a modest change in dashboard behavior May find it appropriate and pleasant to use Tumblr at no charge for the indefinite future as long as it stays online I have my...
It’s not necessarily a given that Yahoo! will mismanage Tumblr into the ground. While I’m almost positive that there will be a shared auth system in our future (you will have to sign into Tumblr using Yahoo! credentials), I can’t say Yahoo! will muck up Tumblr in ways beyond that. There are already ads here. Also, Yahoo! is not the same company today that it was when it made its 2004-2008...
Hey, remember that NY Strip Steak sale? We just cooked one of them on a cast-iron skillet. Was so good that we ate it immediately and I don’t have a picture for u
Only question is, through which startup is Fred Wilson going to launder all of it?
Still getting AllThingsD mixed up with OneDAtATime
Google, Twitter and Apple are like, “One billion? Nah, thanks, but you other guys can buy Tumblr if you want” Apple could buy Tumblr 135 times over with its spare cash (provided that 70 of them were based overseas, of course)

Hey guys, despite the rumors of buyouts, this blog is not undergoing any changes. Everything is fine here, just status quo, nothing changing or YAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Here’s something I can be the millionth person to confirm: Brooks Saddles are reallycomfortable
"Game Of Hedge Funds"
It’s Game Of Thrones but set in modern-day finance. All of the “houses” are separate private equity firms or investment banks all clamoring to control the New York Federal Reserve Bank. “The Wall” is the SEC and that’s where Jon Snow works as a regulator. Varys is a gossip columnist at the New York Post, Littlefinger is a rogue trader. Jaime Lannister was...

Don’t worry, this one is much more low stakes. It’s a bike part.
Sarah Goodyear is terrible, and so on →
ohhleary: n8han: But Goodyear is beyond clueless, she’s malicious in her attempt to conflate street danger with rule obedience. Cyclists having it both ways on street danger would be to advocate that motorists be prosecuted for killing people while cyclists should not be. In fact, it’s motorists like Goodyear who already do have it both ways in this respect. When motorists kill someone (which...

“Hey, let’s start a vertical about managing your personal finances!” ::two years later:: “Hey, let’s write a post mainly about having your cat professionally photographed!”
I know this might come off as an exaggeration or an impossibility, but the ESPN.com commenters are really the lowest lifeforms in the online feedback universe. It is just painful to see what ends up posted over there.
