Yahoo to acquire Tumblr?
If it’s true, I’m out of here. Sorry.
I’ve been using the internet since Prodigy (Classic) and Usenet groups were the only things to play with. When AOL (and eventually Yahoo) became the internet heavyweights and started curating/producing content, as well as purchasing services, once-fun services turned into an experience not unlike wading in a pool filled with hardened turds.
Yahoo knows how to do one thing: dumb down services they purchase. And apparently somehow stay relevant. But a Tumblr purchase would ruin the service, not unlike various online publications, Flickr, and other services I enjoyed before they were absorbed.
And how do they make money? Why can’t anyone answer this?
