“Verizon reportedly seeking to sell Tumblr” http://social.techcrunch.com/2019/05/02/verizon-reportedly-seeking-to-sell-tumblr/
Really for Tumblr to regain a bit of their former glory they need to become an independent again. Another company buying them is unlikely to archive this cus they’ll have an unrealistic expectation for return on investment that a blogging platform can’t deliver.
Permanence of information is not permanence of identity. Or, what you said years ago is not who you are now.
Our youngest generation has been (and will be) online for their entire lives. They should be afforded the right to be wrong and learn from it--just as those of us were who had offline upbringings.
Our words had luxury of ephemerality. Our errors, mistakes, and missteps from navigating uncertainty were lost to the wind. My worst comments are mere memories--not entries in permanent public logs. I do not have to answer for my past because so much of it went unrecorded.
That has now changed, and so too should we. One of the most important modern skills any of us can learn is how to forgive. And one of the most important modern truths is that what someone posted then isn't necessarily indicative of who they are now.

“You’re not getting enough sleep—and it’s killing you” https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/04/youre-not-getting-enough-sleep-and-its-killing-you/
I definitely agree with the notion. I’ve been feeling so tired lately and I have to concede sleeping at 11:30pm to wake up at 6am is not enough sleep for me 😖
On the one paw I regret deciding to watch just one episode of series 5 BoJack Horseman whilst I had the house to myself cus now I’m marathoning through it.
On the other paw, series 5 is amazing and quite possibly my favourite series so far. So damn sure of itself and so ready to try all sorts of episode setups.

Once again John Sericusa has influenced how I see everyday appliances. I see his way of thinking on why a door with water/ice is a bad feature.

Hmm, shame the project is stalling. Hope they succeed in finding another studio to finance and distribute.
“My Samsung Galaxy Fold screen broke after just a day” https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/17/18411510/samsung-galaxy-fold-broken-screen-debris-dust-hinge-flexible-bulge
I think folding phone/tablet screens have enough merit to investigate, but I’m not surprised Samsung’s implementation is off to a bad start. There’s a difference between innovating and peddling novelty for the appearance of innovation.
I have to admit, when I watched the trailer for the Fallen Jedi video game being published by EA, I couldn’t help but be that person who thought “urg, white male protagonist”. 🙄
Star Trek Discovery S2 Theory (spoilers) Show more
What if Discovery makes the jump to the future, but they don’t make it back to their timeline?
And so series 3 becomes about them wandering the universe in the far future, trying to find a way back.
Is it Voyager in time? Yes but now they could break free from having to be a prequel and confined by canon.
Rabbit Street Preacher.
Badly Drawn Bun.
Please don’t feel obligated to follow back.
