This is all very sudden, yeah. The world got maybe two days notice? Three? There's been many boardroom meetings about this that no one has heard of, lol.
As far as I know, Yahoo is going to let Tumblr run independently and whatever, though I'm not sure what their definition of independent is. It certainly seems like Marissa Mayer & co are going to let David Karp and his inefficient team do their thing, remaining only the 'landlords', but for all I know Yahoo! could change whatever they want. I just hope they do what is urgently needed - fixing the goddamn video player. That's the one thing I would not mind Yahoo changing at all.
