tumblr founder David Karp, our bud.

February 25th, 2011

I joined tumblr at the beginning, before then really, since founder David Karp was our high school intern in 2001 and then set up his developer business at Frederator/NY in 2006. And, Adventure Time fans have followed us over there. Obviously, they’ve spread through the world like a wildfire, growing to the 40th largest site on the internet.

Interestingly, at least to readers of this blog, there’s not all that much cartoon action on tumblr. At least, to my taste, not enough. We do our best with Adventure Time, Fanboy & Chum Chum, and the rest of our action, but it still doesn’t come anywhere near what happens there in fashion, illustration, or just plain ‘art.’

Anyhow, all of this chatter was just an excuse to post the longest video interview I’ve seen with David. (Thanks for the shout out at the end buddy.)
