i cant believe mann co is buying tumblr
Okay, so I was reading more articles and found this one:
Tumblr employees have been told that the company only has enough funds to operate for a few more months, as its costs far exceed the limited revenue it earns. Tumblr pulled in $13 million in 2012, but has accelerated its advertising offering in hopes of hitting $100 million in revenue this year. The money’s not coming in fast enough to support its expenses though. Employees were recently told not to be concerned, though, because the company is expecting to be bought.
so it sounded like Tumblr was actually pretty in trouble financially, so from that perspective this whole Yahoo thing doesn’t seem too bad.
that’s not how you flirt….
Pyro don’t listen to them that’s exactly how you flirt
doktorgirlfriend replied to your post: actually while I’m at it you know what I like…
From what I understand, Tumblr doesn’t bother unless they get complaints.
hmmmm yeah, that’s my understanding of it too
so maybe it’s a combination of people being chill enough to not whistleblow on technically infringing blogs (and well really whistleblowing on tons of other things amongst themselves but that’s a different matter entirely) and Tumblr’s rules being laxer than other sites
either way I really dig the not-quite-but-sorta-anarchy style, as terrible as it can get sometimes
ok I swear I’m going to bed now sdfh
okay apparently my were-cynic curse has just manifested and that means I need to go to bed
you guys are wonderful though ok
actually while I’m at it
you know what I like about this website
every other website I’ve been to I’ve heard about and seen people getting their accounts shut down for very stupid reasons
and I don’t know if it’s just the section of Tumblr I live in but I rarely hear about that happening on this site
so thank you, Tumblr
for not policing the shit out of us
you did good
I think I might just be bitter because the main proponents of ~*protecting copyright law*~ are big companies who are less interested in the cultural value of the idea and are more interested in its monetary value instead
and that’s not how a culture develops
that’s how it stagnates
but I suppose the past will always try to control the future when it comes to what people want us to look at
