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.
I have Google+ already, but thank you for offering!
A couple days ago, Google released the their next wave of social integration under the umbrella name, Google+.
One my teachers sent me a quick email asking for a prediction:
Hey, I wanted to ask, what is your prediction for Google+?
What I write here is basically what I shared with him. My impressions and opinions are based merely on what two-minute video and some aside news from a couple of sources, but I haven’t poured much time or effort into researching Google+ either. And of course, I don’t have an invite now, but when I do, I’ll have a better idea.
