This is all kinds of scary. Yahoo are obsessed with acquisitions of sites that execute services better as a way of getting you to use their product. The death sentence that was handed to Flickr through Yahoo’s integration is a prime example of how fast things can go a-wry in a simple business move.
It’s hard to fault David Karp if that number is really true though. A guy that never finished high school to making a billion dollar business deal is difficult to root against but I do hope that he holds up to his word when he discussed the possibility of a buyout in Forbes’ December issue as mentioned in the above source article.
He didn’t want to get “absorbed into a behemoth of another company and raided for talent and traffic.” But he also mentioned being open to “acquisitions that leave the company alone….There are a lot of paths for us.”
Yahoo’s integration strategy is rarely a case of attempting to get their established audience to use their new product, rather the reverse, ill-fated attempts at trying to push their current services on the existing users of a new acquisition.
is this the beginning of the end?

nope, never been to north hampton actually, but it’s probably a great little new england town. close to the berkshires no less!
we live on the internet, mostly..
We haven’t been around for forever but already we’ve racked up some amazing stuff here at beyond 9th avenue. If you’re still new to our tumblr or haven’t done so before make sure to take a look at the way back machine (or if you’re feeling frisky you can click our random page).
You can also search artists by state/city or medium OR just browse the whole flippin’ directory (it’s not ONLY New Yorkers, honestly).
More ways to find everything you didn’t know you were looking for. Safe travels.

Absolutely! Thanks for being awesome
This is a common misconception on this tumblr (and others), that the artwork in each post (especially in Photography posts) was created in the city/state listed in each post - in this case Missy Prince’s Portland, Ore. Listed cities though are only posted in order to categorize where each artist is from - which is the entire premise of this site. But, unsurprisingly, the internet is full of derp and a lot of people don’t take the time to read our about page.
Just wanted to throw that out there. On a warmer note, thank you to all of our followers, we hope you’ve enjoyed our postings thus far.
Finally broke the century mark (what took so long?). Hurray for small achievements!
