tumblr

I don't get the popularity of tumblr. Yes, it is convenient that it aggregates all your various Web 2.0 presences, but prevents conversation. It's a big shoutbox, where you push things out, but there's no discussion. Yes you can use disqus, but that seems to be an unnecessary layer . . .

I think tumblr creates islands, rather than promoting community . . .
