Marco Arment On The One-Person Product – Tumblr

Marco Arment on Tumblr:

In 2006, I moved to New York and started working for David Karp doing web development for various media companies. That fall, in a brief gap before starting a new client, David said that we were going to make a prototype of an idea he’d had for a while. He had already bought the domain:, because it was an easy platform for publishing tumblelogs.

And we all know where this ended…congratulations.
