Creativity and Tech: "We have no idea what’s going to come out of our communities," said Tumblr’s David Karp (david) at the 2014 Digital-Life-Design (DLD) Conference on Jan. 20, 2014. “It’s an unbelievably fulfilling thing to wake up every day and be surprised, thousands and thousands of times over, by what people do with our apps. It is an awesome thing to behold, and it’s, I think, making life on Earth a little bit better.” (Quote at 12:56 marker within a 26-minute video).
Love that we’re seeing the emergence of “Whole new types of art that haven’t existed before” (Karp, ~11:48) and that technology is building the canvas to put it on. How amazing to be a part of it.
Here’s a little tidbit you can toss back next time anyone says you spend too much time on Tumblr. According to Adobe Digital Index, our users generate $1.10 per visit for brands (RPV in agencyspeak) through referrals. Thanks for doing your part to support the free market by avoiding your other responsibilities.
