Will Yahoo screw up Tumblr?

Wired article on where Yahoo can insert ads to monetize Tumblr. Granted that Karp hasn’t been able to monetize it much himself yet (the valuation was $800m already a while ago), but Yahoo does not have a good track record in this…

I remember, not-so-fondly, how my Geocities was shut down without warning and all content deleted(!), and how Flickr faded from relevance.

It would be unfortunate if Tumblr went the same way.

Btw, did you see that Karp dropped out of high school even? That’s one up on Thiel’s “Drop out of college and start your company”-motto…
