  1. My gut suspects this will be bad for both. A popular, lean, agile startup acquired by a lumbering giant with a penchant for fouling up acquisitions. Tumblr has an issue figuring out how to turn the platform to cash…make that had…but Yahoo hasn’t figured out how to make much cash either recently.
