Chew on this

But speaking of Tumblr:

Tumblr’s ver­sion of his­tory has no explana­tory power.

I agree with Basti—that’s a chewy little sequence of words. It’s contained within Alexis Madrigal’s comment on stock and flow, which is worth reading in its entirety.

One comment

i’ve been using tumblr for a while and never really thought about this. i even imported my old blog from wordpress so my archive goes back, technically, before tumblr even existed – which i think is funny. not often you can find 8 years of archival content on a platform that hasn’t existed for half that. especially on today’s web.

although, what i do appreciate about tumblr’s historical navigation is the narrative it tries to tell. the whole reason i switched from wordpress was the UI and the fragmentation. i felt, with the tumblr platform, i can tell a better narrative. the tags and search are more straightforward and don’t have double-meaning. what’s nice about tumblr is that it gets out of the way when you’re trying to tell a story.
