i cant even be bothered anymore about the fact

i cant even be bothered anymore about the fact that me and my data is commodified in the ways that it is.
particularly not when i get something out of it, which is why i use a lot of google services. many of them work the way i need them too.
it was inevitable that tumblr would either need to be purchased or start running more ads, but since karp doesn’t like ads and that they were looking to raise more venture capital, the investors likely pushed to make this acquisition happen
tumblr has never turned a profit. it could last forever.
