huffingtonpost.com — Tumblr introduced a new form of advertising to the site on Thursday, setting off a chorus of criticism from users surprised and miffed to see brands' messages in their feeds. The changes appear to have been in the works well before Yahoo's splashy $1.1 billion acquisition, announced earlier this month.
valleywag.gawker.com — Tumblr brought Mark Coatney aboard from Newsweek to bolster the site's editorial side-"to show how [Tumblr] can be key to connecting journalists and readers." Three years (and a Yahoo acquisition) later, and another early employee is gone. Coatney isn't saying much about the departure, other than that it's a "good time."
