I hope Yahoo does not destroy Tumblr like Twitter destroyed Posterous.
I hope Tumblr refuses to accept this offer from Yahoo, despite all it could offer them. I talked about this on At The Nexus #76 in more detail. Good luck to both, more to you, Tumblr.
Tumblr is taking a very safe approach with this acquisition – the CEO stays onboard and the company maintains plenty of autonomy. That’s great. And Yahoo said they’ll keep their hands off the porn business that somehow wound up on Tumblr – that is the best sign, I think, that Yahoo believes in Tumblr as a platform.
Good luck to you both.
