Announcing Mallow 2.0
We just released a big update to our Mallow Tumblr theme - big enough to slap a 2.0 on it.
We also added the Tumblr reblog and like buttons, support for panorama posts and Tumblr’s native twitter integration.
Last, but not least, Mallow enables you to display the latest posts from any of Tumblr’s featured tags. Check out the #fashion tag on our preview blog or the #music tag on the official Tumblr music blog.
We had a great time last night co-hosting a networking event with my friend, Lindsay Burton of Kayo Advisory. The Farm of Belmont was kind enough to tap a keg of honey wheat in their new biergarten, and The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative opened up their gallery to give us a sneak peak into the newest collection.
My favorite thing about our little group of “interesting people” is that conversation topics naturally range from intellectual property lawsuits to the best taco trucks in town.
Thank you all for coming! It was a pleasure hearing about your latest projects and brainstorming about how we can all help each other out. Looking forward to the next event in July. Until then, cheers!
A few months ago, I spoke about Tumblr at Virginia Tech’s University Relations annual retreat. I used Yale’s tumblelog as an example. Yale is leading the way among institutions of higher learning that “get” Tumblr. Why do I feel that way? Simple - their content and level of engagement. Let’s take a closer look.

Graham and I both attended Virginia Tech. Today, April 16th, is a day of remembrance for us and all Hokies across the world. Our thoughts are with all of those impacted by the tragedy six years ago and the bombings in Boston yesterday.
This is one of the reasons why you shouldn’t have a user name called “admin” or “Admin” if you use Wordpress.
Good post for any WordPress users out there.
