Why you don’t want Tumblr sold to exploitative Pornhub

Tumblr has been squandered ever since it was bought for $1.1 billion in 2013 by Yahoo, now part of Verizon Media Group. Without proper strategy or talent, the blogging tool and early meme-sharing network fell into decline while Medium and Instagram soared. Yahoo wrote down Tumblr’s value by $230 million in 2016. Then last year, Verizon evicted Tumblr’s huge and loyal base of porn bloggers, leaving no viable platform for independent adult content creators and curators. Now the Wall Street Journal...

What Marketers Can Learn from F8 2019

Facebook’s 2019 F8 conference got off to a bold start this year, with Mark Zuckerberg delivering a keynote speech in front of a banner reading “the future is private.” Following months of backlash over privacy concerns, Facebook chose to focus this year’s conference on features that will help users feel more secure on the platform and, in turn, encourage them to share more. These include features like Secret Crush—a Tindr-like service that allows users to romantically link to their current Faceb...

Reflections of Tokyo past and present

A change of emperor on Wednesday marked a changed of era. It was goodbye Heisei and hello Reiwa, which will result in calendar and document changes, but in regards day-to-day life, not much else. Also, such era changes are positively glacial when compared to the urban and societal shifts that Tokyo, and Japan in general, are experiencing. Pressing, and for some perplexing changes that will continue apace long after the pomp and circumstance of the last few days has passed.

Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and Your New Microcomputercam
