“Tumblr: I do get the appeal. You can shape your entire identity by curating your taste through other people’s work. It’s like an old-school Myspace page where you rattle off your interests: favorite books, movies, TV shows.. except you actually show them. Who wants to read what someone’s about when you can scroll through animated gifs of it?
My issue is that Tumblr is top-heavy on the curation and weak on the creation. Instead of just re-hashing and cloning what someone else is doing, why not make something yourself? What is the point of all this inspiration if you’re not doing anything with it? At that point, it’s just porn and you’re just playing with yourself.”
