“The ongoing debate about Tumblr vs Livejournal is like a fan with a hammer arguing with a fan with screwdriver over who is better at building a waterbed.”
~xlorp (via meeedeee)

subtleaccordions said: and it also repeats every single argument raised in platform vs platform for the last twenty years… *groans*

Nods in agreement. Of course that it is like every other previous platform debate sometimes obscures the fact that we should be debating how the technology platforms work, which are better suited for X purpose, why we might want to invest in something different, and the ways that the platforms are changing how we interact with one another. Are these changes something we want to embrace? Resist? Ignore and get back to writing more MPREG RPS?   Or how about discussing who owns the platforms that we’ve adopted and whether their interests are aligned with ours? 

The fact is,  we often cannot even get to these issues because we keep getting stuck in that binary: X Good. Y Bad. 

Well I am here to tell you: no one is sleeping in that waterbed until we put the damn tools down and start thinking.
