Fake Farewells

Jakob Lodwick, Vimeo founder and self-proclaimed Fameball, has said good-bye to Tumblr and "the Social Web." Will it last?

It's the latest in a long line of "final posts" -- Dave Winer, Julia Allison come to mind -- that really mean "I'm really upset and I'm taking a break". We don't think it will stick, but goodbyes are always fun to read, even if they're fake.

I mostly like old, unpopular things, like from 2002. I'm also 102 years old.
