"The browser extension, Missing e… modifies the look and feel of Tumblr to add several new features — something that Tumblr has taken issue with for months…. This puts Tumblr, known for its stance on SOPA as a champion of user rights, in a bit of an awkward position: In this case, it’s the entity seeking to block access to a popular and by all accounts useful piece of software.

The result, it seems, is a return to the age-old tension between users’ desire to get more out of a platform than it was designed to offer and a platform’s need to control its product. We’ve seen it with Twitter, Dave Winer notes, we’ve seen it with Facebook, and now we’re seeing it with Tumblr."

I find it interesting that tumblr USED to have links to multiple 3rd Party Apps. And now that I'm looking for it, that page is missing, it seems to have been taken down. Granted it's their site and they can really do what they want, there seems to be no reason for them to discourage what tumblr.com/developers calls inventing "whole new ways to use tumblr". Glad you're still going strong, we appreciate it.

"The sad thing is that Apple is providing a bad example for younger, smaller companies like Twitter and Tumblr, who apparently want to control the “user experience” of their platforms in much the same way as Apple does. They feel they have a better sense of quality than the randomness of a free market….

Tumblr has decided that a browser add-on is unwelcome. Presumably it’s only an issue because a fair number of their users want to use it. So they are taking issue not only with the developer, but with the users. They have admitted that the problem is that they must “educate” their users better. Oy! Does this sound familiar. In the end, it will be the other way around. It has to be. It’s the lesson of the Internet."
The tech world is in an infinite loop. #. I've written about it so many times, but that's how it goes with loops. You don't have to write original stuff more than once. Each time around th...
