Tumblr’s lead dev: “Scoble doesn’t know what he’s talking about”

Oh, Tumblr‘s lead developer, Marco Arment, said yesterday on his Tumblelog that he doesn’t listen to me because he doesn’t think I know what I’m talking about. Oh, that’s a bummer, cause I was just about to tell the world a few things:

1. That Tumblr is doing the most innovative stuff out there in the world of blogging.
2. That I expect that in 2009 Tumblr will come out on top of the growth curve for services like Twitter, FriendFeed, etc.
3. That Marco is brilliant.
4. That Tumblr is well positioned to make a ton of money over next couple of years, even with the bad economy factored in because they were going to charge their users, something that SmugMug has done and done quite well with. (Of course, that’s probably why they picked up $4.5 million in venture last week).

But, like Marco said, I don’t know what I’m talking about, so you can move along and go back to Facebook.

Oh, and I subscribed. Why? Cause I like following brilliant people who don’t listen to me. They tend to change the world.

UPDATE: Marco answered. Wait a second, how did he see this post if he isn’t listening to me? Funny, he learned about it from a Facebook friend.

  1. As a micro-blogging platform, Tumblr has a more sophisticated set of users than Twitter. They don’t automatically follow me when I follow them. It’s all about creative content for Tumblrists. This is the reason why I’m on Tumblr: To find unique material.

    For business related topics, I do tend to go with Twitter and good ol’ blogs, like Robert’s.
