Life World Library | Series | LibraryThing
[A series of books that I used to look through and read frequently. I saw some of them in the Clatsop Community College library today. A few images: ]

[Another reference: ]

[Update 2 Aug 2012: By contrast, while I love the idea and content of this series , I'm not fond of the design. Short story: loved what they did in the 60s, was disappointed by what they did in the 70s.]

Media Companies Try Getting Social With Tumblr -
"Mr. Coatney describes Tumblr as “a space in between Twitter and Facebook.” The site allows users to upload images, videos, audio clips and quotes to their pages, in addition to bursts of text.

As on Twitter, users can follow other users, whose posts appear in a chronological stream on a central home page known as the dashboard. Users can indicate that they like an item by clicking on a red heart next to it or “reblogging” it.

One of the big differences between Tumblr and Twitter is that Tumblr does not display how many followers a user has, said David Karp, Tumblr’s 24-year-old founder and chief executive.

“Who is following you isn’t that important,” he said. “It’s not about getting to the 10,000-follower count. It’s less about broadcasting to an audience and more about communicating with a community.”"
