"Not sure if I am an evil genius, or just someone who watches too much TV"
I am a Texas college student (studying Management of Information Systems), and I am a Tech enthusiast, computer geek and sci-fi fan.
I queue most posts but will do a post dump about once every few weeks.
I’m delighted to announce that we’ve reached an agreement to acquire Tumblr!
We promise not to screw it up. Tumblr is incredibly special and has a great thing going. We will operate Tumblr independently. David Karp will remain CEO. The product roadmap, their team, their wit and irreverence will all remain the same as will their mission to empower creators to make their best work and get it in front of the audience they deserve. Yahoo! will help Tumblr get even better, faster.
Tumblr has built an amazing place to follow the world’s creators. From art to architecture, fashion to food, Tumblr hosts 105 million different blogs. With more than 300 million monthly unique visitors and 120,000 signups every day, Tumblr is one of the fastest-growing media networks in the world. Tumblr sees 900 posts per second (!) and 24 billion minutes spent onsite each month. On mobile, more than half of Tumblr’s users are using the mobile app, and those users do an average of 7 sessions per day. Tumblr’s tremendous popularity and engagement among creators, curators and audiences of all ages brings a significant new community of users to the Yahoo! network. The combination of Tumblr+Yahoo! could grow Yahoo!’s audience by 50% to more than a billion monthly visitors, and could grow traffic by approximately 20%.
In terms of working together, Tumblr can deploy Yahoo!’s personalization technology and search infrastructure to help its users discover creators, bloggers, and content they’ll love. In turn, Tumblr brings 50 billion blog posts (and 75 million more arriving each day) to Yahoo!’s media network and search experiences. The two companies will also work together to create advertising opportunities that are seamless and enhance user experience.
As I’ve said before, companies are all about people. Getting to know the Tumblr team has been really amazing. I’ve long held the view that in all things art and design, you can feel the spirit and demeanor of those who create them. That’s why it was no surprise to me that David Karp is one of the nicest, most empathetic people I’ve ever met. He’s also one of the most perceptive, capable entrepreneurs I’ve worked with. His respect for Tumblr’s community of creators is awesome, and I’m absolutely delighted to have him and his entire team join Yahoo!.
Both Tumblr and Yahoo! share a vision to make the Internet the ultimate creative canvas by focusing on users, design — and building experiences that delight and inspire the world every day.
— Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!
* The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in the second half of the year. More information about the news can be found in the press release we issued today.
this actually doesn’t look that bad. *crosses fingers*
And not just triplets, 3 BOYS.
Anyways… I present to you: Tristan, Kaster, and Caleum. (no pics yet lol)
So much cuteness. So much poop.
River and The Doctor need to stop shagging like rabbits.
ENOUGH WITH THE MAKING OUT AND WHOOHOOO ALREADY.
I feel like the TARDIS, going all “of course, yes, procreate! Make time babies and repopulate the universe with time lords!” when i press that ‘try for baby’ button. Baby. NOT BABIES.
They’ve already got Freya (who is an angel btw-she’s a kid now, almost teen)
and Bayer ‘Bay’ or who i call ‘Bay-bay’ (haha water names) who’s a pain in the ass who wants to spend all his time playing chess and not doing his homework
Lookit that little smug bastard playing in the toy box…God he’s so adorable, but such a pain. (He just aged up into a child because i couldn’t take it anymore #cheats)
But TRIPLETS? FIVE KIDS???????????? WHY.
Lord help me. Here we go.
I have never gotten multiple babies, also how many kids are you planning on them having? you know there is a limit on family size?
I think I ship River/Clara more that Clara/Doctor. just the looks that River was giving clara.
