Say you die in a traffic accident today. In that instant, your time freezes. You’ll never go further. One day will pass, one month, years, generations; gradually, you’ll disappear even from all human memory.
But Gmail will keep receiving email, Twitter will keep relating your colleagues’ thoughts, mixi will keep relating your colleagues’ diaries, Tumblr will keep sharing images, Yahoo Auction will keep finding old relics, Amazon will keep recommending new products, YouTube will keep showing funny videos.
Isn’t it a little bittersweet to think of how, so long as these services exist, we’ll never be fully released, completely free?
Tumblr isn't just a site. Tumblr isn't just a family. Tumblr is a fully populated city. It's a neighborhood. We fight. We have our problems. It's a school. We learn new things everyday. It's a hospital. We save lives. We're there for the sick. It's shelter. We care for those who need caring for. It's a gallery. We show our talents. We network. Tumblr is just life on the internet. No censors. No rules. Just individual morals. It's like a 70's diner where everyone knows everyone and we'll welcome you with open arms - until you mess up. It's the life you wish you had. It's the life you're going to have. It's the life you've dreamed of. You are cared for. You are loved. On Tumblr, you are not alone.
