Colossal has popped up in the news here and there lately so I thought I’d share some of it here right quick. Most recently Jacquelyn Gleisner from Art21/PBS wrote a really nice piece about how Colossal began and what’s happened over the past year, head over to Art21 blog to read Becoming Colossal with Blogger Christopher Jobson.
A tweet I made comparing incoming traffic from Pinterest versus Tumblr sparked a few healthy conversations via email and Twitter, and lead Philip Bump to write an article for the Atlantic. Check out The ‘Cliffs Notes Web’ Has Won. To be clear, I love both services dearly for different reasons, but users of Pinterest appear to be much more likely to leave that ecosystem to explore elsewhere, versus Tumblr which appears to be more closed.
