staff:

Welcome to the second installment of our government transparency report, where we explain in (hopefully not boring) detail the government requests we receive for account information, and how we respond to those requests. 
How many requests? From January to June 2014, we provided information—either user data or blog content—for 84% of the requests made, covering 199 blog URLs. This represents approximately 0.00010% of all blogs on Tumblr. Not a huge number, but this is about full disclosure, no matter what the scale. 
Also in this report: some emerging trends in the data, and some information about our improved user notice policy. Plus: a few additional gems to keep you fully educated about when the government is requesting your information, and what we’re doing to defend your rights. 
We take the privacy of your information seriously, as you know, and we’ll be auditing ourselves twice a year from here on out. Look for our next report in early 2015.

Earth Day Contemplation

What does it mean to honor the Earth?

To me, it means appreciating something that typically goes unnoticed.

All the time we see pictures and movies of geographically stunning landscapes. Those may be landscapes of beauty or landscapes of polluted decay.

From those images, we may form an idea…
