    Ever tried, at a glance, to determine whether an arbitrary Tumblr is 100% reblogged/recycled or 100% original content? Yeah, that.

  3. @McKelvie @flaneur The irony is that Tumblr has provenance-tracking baked in. Maybe that's why people are so cavalier about attribution.

  7. @McKelvie @flaneur But straight reblogging has a clear provenance path + attribution tools (why I moved link curation there from my blog).

    @McKelvie @flaneur Tumblr, like everywhere else, is creators:curators:consumers in a 1:10:100(0?) ratio. Diff is, you can SEE the consumers.

    @McKelvie @flaneur Also, consumers likely see themselves as curators, rather than partaking of (literally) conspicuous consumption.

  8. @debcha @McKelvie I have no problem with conspicuous consumption; I just wish you could SEE the creators too (more easily, or at all).

    @debcha @McKelvie Especially since, as you mention, they have the data.

    You might be able to see it if you sign in with Twitter.

  10. @stml @debcha @McKelvie That's it in a nut; Tumblr doesn't distinguish orig from reblogs when shown/interacted with, even though they could.

  11. @flaneur @stml That's a neat point! Like maybe 'Reblog from source' button, so poor @McKelvie's lovely art doesn't get buried?

  13. @McKelvie @flaneur @stml Tumblr makes it easy to attribute well (in many ways, if not all); but it's also obvious when it's done badly.

  16. @debcha @McKelvie @stml Agree it's all a bit windmill-tilting at this point; user habits usually come from the infrastructure itself. Still.
