Reblog, Reblog, Reblog!

Tumblr was founded in February of 2007, but never has it been more popular than it is right now. It is currently rated the 36th most popular web site on the Internet according to Alexa ranking, and unlike Pinterest it caters to males and females equally in its content and users.

The microblogging platform and social networking web site allows users to post pictures, gifs (moving images), videos, music, text and other content all over their own personal blog. They are able to follow other users, and there is no pressure for the person to return the favor and follow back.

Another Boredom Movement

What will it take for us to be taken seriously?

There is a huge wave of semi-panicked individuals (generally politicians and journalists) who are scared of anything the 'Internet' does. Many of these so-called professionals seem to think the entire web is in cahoots, ready to steal their money, their identities and quite possibly their babies. From the outside looking in, it looks as if they feel there's an inherent danger simply in people coming together, whatever the cause.

Frankly, I find this trend disturbing.
