On why Tumblr is so unprofitable.
I actually disagree with the article headline. I think there is money in “internet culture”, which in this instance mostly means “fandom”. Sites like Pinboard and AO3 or, like, the Homestuck Kickstarter1 prove that the dollars are there. It’s just that they’re not dollars the ad-driven, unicorn-hunting Big Brand tech sector knows how to find.
Also, related: “Dat Boi” isn’t funny and never was and trying to explain it just makes you sound older than not getting the joke in the first place…
