Pocket wants to be your permanent digital library, for a price
$5 per month gives you a permanent archive, search, and auto-tagging. Is it worth it?

Tumblr could have been that. If their search and tagging filters weren’t gamed bulshite.

We’ve been super fortunate here at Tumblr to be involved in a number of important public policy efforts over the years, and right now we’re keeping close watch on the debate around net neutrality.
As part of our efforts, we sent Ali (Tumblr Legal) and Liba (Tumblr Policy & Causes) down to DC last Friday, filed a letter with the FCC, and joined an industry letter (along with companies like Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Twitter, and our parent Yahoo) to the FCC urging them to act in favor of net neutrality. Our close friend Brad Burnham at Union Square Ventures also filed a wonderful letter focusing on how net neutrality is critical for nascent startups​.
If you have any questions or ideas about how the Tumblr community can get involved in this issue, please drop us a note!

Need to Keep Longer Text Intact for Reblogs?Try a photo post instead of a text post. When you reblog, Tumblr automatically shortens text posts with more than 500 characters, creating a link post to the rest. Sure, anyone who reblogs the post can switch from reblog as link to reblog as text to get the entire text post.
But if you start with a photo post and use the caption as your text, all the text magically remains intact when reblogged. No text shortening. You might use the photo portion of the post as an illustrated headline, like I did with "Handy Tumblr URLs from A to Z."
