Calculation Nº 4: T-Bills — Stupid Calculations

Wow! It would take 70 million years to look at each Tumblr blog if you have each one 2 mins of your time.

"…As of May 21st there are 109.2 million blogs and 51 billion posts on Tumblr. If one assigned a figure of two minutes per blog, that’s a 102,000,000,000 minutes. Or 1,700,000,000 hours. 70,833,333 days.

For sake of comparison, the Empire State Building took 7 million man-hours. Tumblr time’s nearly 243 of those.”

After, and Before: new Tumblr app post type.

Nice!

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 thefastest-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.

Lets hope they don’t just buy it and shut it down like they always do. They did it to Summly just a month it so ago….

How do they make money?
Pretty cool web tool that allows you to get a somewhat accurate look into your favorite web services’ financial situations.

Damn, hope Tumblr can figure out a way to make some $$$ so it can continue!

The big takeaway from this fascinating graphic for me:

Every minute, Wordpress users post 347 posts.

Tumblr users? 27,778 posts per minute.

Bam. Tumblr’ed.

Hehe, I love how All the Tumblr people look up to David Karp, the creator of Tumblr.

The first rule of Tumblr is that you always reblog the creator, always. Hehe!
