About once a week some 16-year-old girl emails me to tell me I have a boring blog for someone who works at Tumblr.
i gotta talk to @davidkarp about this. if i’m reading this correctly, it looks like Tumblr is *growing* by 200M page views per week.
Ah, yes – an incredible opportunity and challenge!
The really impressive piece is that our engineers have been keeping up with this surge in traffic while serving fewer and fewer errors every week. It’s been a rough couple of months, but we’re almost there.
Giant blogging platform Tumblr has decided to adopt cartoonist Matthew “The Oatmeal” Inman’s suggestion for a “fail whale” down-time graphic, the artist said in a Twitter message this afternoon. Inman posted the image of TumblBeasts taking over the servers this afternoon and said “please oh please use it” to Tumblr. Four hours later, Inman said he’d received an email from Tumblr’s founder agreeing to use the image. You can see the end result [above] or live at this link.
Tumblr is a fast-growing publishing platform (last month we reported it has now raised more money and sees more hosted pageviews each month than WordPress) but it has struggled with occasional down-time, as such platforms often do. Its urban hipster image sometimes leads to mockery of its upset users when they complain of downtime, but we argued in support of those emotions in a December post titled Why a Day of Tumblr Downtime Matters to the Entire Web & World.
This is great.
