The New Niceness: Your Mom "Liked" This


Well we’ve known this for a while, so I guess now it’s confirmed. Just a couple months ago, we discovered: the Internet is… making people… nicer? For instance, Tumblr was designed in a way that ensured that it “didn’t have a lot of avenues for negativity,” according to that first story! And in today’s (actually very charming) Observer story, “There’s a lot of incentive and positive reinforcement when you use Tumblr,” is what Tumblr founder David Karp said. David Karp is your Internet mind-controller, because he will not install a button that says “I HATE THIS” on his blog platform! Still it is true I guess that no one has killed anyone by way of MySpace recently, so good job, you horrid wenches!
