Tumblr meetup at Fat Cat.
I remember meeting a lot of the people I came to know on Tumblr, in person, this night, I think March 13 in 2008. This was long before Tumblr was much of a thing outside of New York. I spent a lot more time on Tumblr back in those days.
It seems pretty likely that Tumblr, this weekend, is at a turning point.
Tumblr as a product simply stop attempting to evolve over the last couple of years, perhaps by design. Despite that, growth has continued, it’s a massive success in terms of size and scale. It even managed to generate a few million dollars, but not likely enough to sustain itself as a business and I suspect there’s not much runway left to try.
Whatever happens, this place was something special for me, and continues to be for many others. I really enjoyed the time I spent here.
