Tonight we are offering a two-for-one special: setting up a themed t-shirt shop at Skreened and self-testing your own advice. So welcome to another night at Idea Bar, please free to use anything that seems interesting.
Tumblr has totally changed my relationship to cataloguing my thoughts on the web.
It’s fun to use (so it doesn’t feel like one more thing I can’t keep up with) and I don’t obsess over formatting different kinds of posts as Tumblr makes some of those decisions for me. I’m sure there tech purists that want infinite amount of control.
To me though, what has made the internet revolution over the last decade is easy to use broadcast tools built on web standards. Tumblr may be too limited for some, but that’s it’s genius. That’s what makes Twitter and Facebook so successful as well. Limits.
After using Tumblr to do play around with a visual shopping shopping list of sorts, called I want candy, I started a group blog of imagery and inspiration with my friend David, called Trumpery. And then decided that my project Inaudible Nonsense needed to come out of its dormant period.
It’s now on Tumblr as well. Please do follow along.
