Tumble Fish

The ebb and flow of the various social platforms available now is quite something. Some seem to work from the off, some take a little longer, others disappear with out trace. Usability and value seems to be the key – how easy it is to use and the function it performs for us in our digital lives – but the subtleties that emerge and evolve around how we end up using them and how they interact are never less than interesting.

I started a Tumblr recently. I use Delicious a lot, but found that the Tumblr was a better way of capturing interesting visuals and thoughts that I could return to. So it has ended up performing a function that sits somewhere between my Delicious and this blog . It hasn't stopped me using Delicious – the two services feel complementary. Likewise, it won't effect what I do here (for me, the main action will always happen here) but right now it's working for me as an easy, low-commitment, useful record of stuff that I find and I like. After I'd started, I was happy to discover that there were a number of people to whom I'm connected in different ways who were also Tumbling, and a whole bunch of other interesting Tumblr's that I now look at. So, if you're so inclined, you can follow the Dead Fish Tumblr here, and access the RSS feed here, and I've even stuck a handy widget down there in the right hand sidebar.

    I don’t use neither of them, i use onlywire but it seems like onlywire is too broad and doesn’t have enough features to satisfy my needs.

    I use my Tumblr as a kind of digital scrapbook.
    It’s seems I’m not alone in doing this.
    Nice one Neil.

    Digital scrapbook – nice description, Stan. Seems like that’s how most people are indeed using Tumblr. Kind of like it.
