Congratulations to Tumblr and Yahoo!
The news that Yahoo is acquiring Tumblr should be inspiring to all tech entrepreneurs on several levels, but it is especially welcomed by New York tech executives. And on top of that... on the same day that Yahoo announced the Tumblr deal, they also announced that they would be moving most of their NYC operations (other than Tumblr) into the former New York Times building.
We should all be very proud. Yes, New York is a tech innovation center now. Yes, we can create valuable companies beyond ad tech and fin tech.
This was a great day for New York City tech community.
