There is a new way to blog these days, and it's called Tumblr.com. I recently found out about it through IBM's Smarter Planet website and decided to check it out. It allows you to create and host your blog, but what differentiates it from sites like WordPress and Blogger is the fact that it allows you to "post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos, from your browser, phone, desktop, email, or wherever you happen to be." 'Tumblelogging' or 'tumbling' is considered a quick, to-the-point form of blogging. Users can wander around the internet and snag everything they find interesting to share with their followers.
Like EBCDIC and TokenRing, it's just another thing IBM has to be different on. But this one is pretty cool I have to say. It feels a bit like FaceBook + Stumbleupon to me.
