“This is where Tumblr comes in. It’s the future of social networking if your image of the future features intelligent discourse. I love reading other Tumblr users replies, because they’re thoughtful by virtue of the fact that if they’re not, they’ll bring the intellectual property value of their own blog down, and that’s a commodity on Tumblr.”
After three years at this, I can’t begin to describe the feeling of having this philosophy — the reason Tumblr will never feature a legacy comment system — described so perfectly.
I love you, John.
