david karp (it's the real name, alright, don't laugh) invented tumblr when he was only nineteen. right, at nineteen i was... yeah, struggling with trials to apply free template on my blog.
he invented tumblr because he felt the need to express himself, without the 'big empty text box' (when we clicked 'new post' in blogspot, for example) stopping him. weird. why don't i feel suppressed by this empty white box? coz i know i have the power to write whatever the **** i want to write on it? well, maybe :)
a bit more about this young man with beautiful eyes is that he learned coding at eleven (when i still didn't even have the chance to *touch* a pc), was homeschooled from the age fifteen, and had lived in japan alone when he was eighteen.
this is one spectacular dude. :) wonder why i never hear his name before. all i hear is two words : mark zuckerberg.
