Yahoo – Tumblr
It is reported as a done deal: Yahoo made a 1.1 billion cash offer to acquire Tumblr and the offer has been accepted.
I’ll copy and paste some web reactions to the deal:
- WSJ on the deal
- Yahoo promises not to screw it up
- David Karp on Tumblr
- Marco Arment on a personal note about working together with David Karp: One Person Product
- Marissa Mayer and David Karp on the ABC Morning Show
If you are interested in my thoughts about Tumblr, please have a look at Chair Blog.
A tongue in Cheek Gif was published shortly after the announcement:
Yahoo – Flickr
May 20 had been planned to launch a major refit of the Flickr site by Yahoo prior to the news of Tumblr being acquired.
Note: I’ve fallen in the same old trap again: Pushing the publish button rather than the save button. So I’ll flesh it out while it is online.
