Captain America: Civil War Already Has A Meme

The clash of superheroes movie doesn’t come out until May 2016. That hasn’t stopped the Internet.


The First-Ever Cat Convention Pretty Much Broke The Internets

Last weekend, CatCon took the internet by storm. 10,000 people descended on the convention in LA, which featured appearances by celebrity cats, cat-centric panels, and all the cat swag you could shake a stick with a dangling feather at.


Tumblr Now Has A GIF Search Feature

Long before Giphy existed, Tumblr was a home for our animated treasures. Now, the blogging platform is making it easier for us to comb through its vast collection of GIFs and add them to our posts than ever before, with the rollout of its very own GIF search engine.


Look At All These Tech Panels That Are Only Dudes

We know that Silicon Valley has a women problem, and it’s not just at Pied Piper. Even worse, perhaps, is what happens when these mostly-male tech companies are invited to talk about their success with other mostly-male tech companies at public events. It’s not at all unusual to see seven penises onstage without a vagina in sight.


Beautiful Maps Will Change How You Look At The World

Sadly, the Oxford English Dictionary has yet to accept ‘cartophile‘ as the official term for a map-lover (though Urban Dictionary has no such qualms). But even if the title lacks the linguistic seal of approval, there’s no doubt that maps can be lust-worthy objects.


If You Could Only Use One Social Network, What Would It Be?

Few of us have the mental bandwidth to care about the latest hot new social thing. When Foursquare split its app, I never downloaded Swarm in protest. I never signed up for Ello. Do I sound too get-off-my-lawn when I say screw Snapchat?


I Could Spend Hours Gazing At Pictures From Old Science Magazines

Briefly: If you’re on the lookout for a good old-fashioned internet time-suck, head over to the Tumblr scienceisstrange, where one hero has scanned a great many pages of over 300 issues of SCIENCE magazine from 1950-1980. The collection is full of great ads, illustrations, and photos depicting retro-gadgetry and science in all its halftone printed glory. That’s a wrap on the next few hours for me. See ya!


What GIF Would You Put In A Time Capsule?

I used to shake my cane at the sky and declare “I just don’t get kids today and their GIFsets.” Then I went to work for Tumblr.


What If We Dressed Like Our Social Networks?

We all spend so much damn time looking at them; what if we started… being a bit like them too? In this photo shoot, Viktorija Pashuta imagined a world where we started dressing like our social networks. The results are… slightly disturbing.


The Very First Wikipedia Entries For 19 Tech Icons

Single-serving tumblrs tend to fizzle out and die before their first day is even up, but First Drafts of History might actually have some staying power. Because when it comes to hunting down the more delightfully bizarre of Wikipedia’s first entries, there’s enough material to last a lifetime.
