Dear Tumblr: Replies

Without a doubt, this is an awesome feature and I can’t wait to see where it goes.  I hope upon a thousand stars that you are trending the results of this new feature.  I’d love to see some sexy graphs and charts analyzing the effects of replies on reblogs, any changes to conversation threads, the influx of media sharing.

It seemed you guys were so hard stance against any sort of commenting system for the longest time, I’d love to hear David, Marco, or Marc what led to this feature change?  Were there heated battles, late night arguments, or did it all go down in a battle royal that ended up in the accidental death of an intern?

Give us some juicy gossip from the Tumblr offices, I’m bored and itching!



OK Trends: Reply By Race.
OK Trends has a new article up about how your race can affect your ability to receive replies from other people looking for love (or sex).  There is a slew of charts and information.  I don’t get why 45% of white men would prefer to date their own race; I find women sexy regardless of their HSB settings.
Data aggregation is sexy.

Health Care Cost Vs. Life Expectancy.
Time to let the data graphs do their work.  Can we just get this printed on every newspaper, in every store, and on every TV commercial for the next month so America would shut up and get it’s ass in shape? Seriously.
Thanks to National Geographic for the data and Boing Boing for the scoop.
