Tumblr is like “The Matrix” in that its dashboard is a overwhelming stream of posts that have information and consciousness that you have to filter out and see what you want to see.

Twitter can be the same way too.

Today In Geek History, A Hope History Won’t Repeat Itself


The Twitter feed for @geekhistory posted this little fact today. As a current Tumblr user and a former Geocities user it is a little chilling.

Now, I don’t think that history will repeat itself, however there is always a cause for concern. In today’s Internet climate we are seeing rapid fire change with companies coming and going. Tumblr needs to keep innovating and building on what it does best, blogging.

Some changes are driving some users crazy but there is one thing about the Internet, it never stays the same for long. As long as David Karp is in control things will be fine.

Tumblr users need to remain faithful, active and continue to use this service as a creative outlet and not just a place to reblog. Yahoo has invested itself in Tumblr but we will have to see what the future holds.

Following and “Stalking”


I appreciate following and “stalking” fellow bloggers across different channels of social networking. Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and other sites are great ways to be connected. Sometimes it feels like good natured “stalking” but its a good way to keep in touch and see what we are all up to online. These connections can be about creativity and sharing in different ways. Keep on blogging and connecting good people.
