"The cobbler's kids never have shoes."Tumby Founder Robert Buckley commenting on our website in August 2013.
We've been so ferociously focused on building and delivering Tumby innovations that we've ignored a traditional website presence. Oops.
We're fixing that. And, we'll do our best to make your visits worthwhile.
Meanwhile—as we continue to create the standard stuff you expect at a website—here's an excerpt from an interview we did with Michael Cervieri, founder of The Future Journalism Project, for some of our backstory.
What discoverability issues are you trying to tackle, and how do you go about doing it?
Robert Buckley: Let me start by answering “why”. There’s a treasure trove of stuff already on Tumblr and more arriving by the minute. The challenge is it’s difficult and time-consuming to find. That’s true for folks who are already in the Tumblrverse and more so for folks outside of it. The stereotype of Tumblr being the land of animated cat GIFs and porn is true for too many.
The reality is there’s lots of serious, meaningful, and relevant “adult material”—yes, pun intended—ready and waiting for you. There’s awesome stuff that spans interesting subject matter including journalism, photography, art, news, politics, culture, history, and lots more. We don’t want you to miss the good stuff and we make it easy for you to avoid the bad. There’s room for fandoms but it should not be at the risk of obscuring work like yours at The FJP.
We do this by sticking with our vision to innovate new ways to make it easier and quicker to discover, enjoy, and share content. That’s a win for the consumers and a win for the producers.
How? Make it easier to triage the stuff most relevant to one’s particular interests. Make it easier to find stuff focused on specific subject matter.
Make it easier to consume and to share it so the content producers get more amplification. Make it easier to prolong the content’s shelf-life, so deserved by its producers for their efforts. Make it easier to introduce the Tumblrverse to outsiders—they just may join the party and create Tumblrs that add value too.
If you experience excitement that lasts more than 4 hours using Tumby you do not need to seek medical attention but you should consider taking a break.
