I read on the Internet that this place is cash only, so I brought cash.
Scott Kidder, alway prepared (via david)
It seems that Yahoo, too, is always prepared and brought some cash. As Matt Mullenweg said last night, acquisitions like this are bittersweet: it’s an amazing accomplishment for David and the entire Tumblr team, but as someone with a preference for independent companies I’ll always wonder what could have been.
That said, if there’s anyone who can buck the trend on Yahoo marginalizing companies it acquires, I suspect it’s Marissa Mayer. I will be cheering from the sidelines.
