New York Times Puts Tumblr Dashboard in Print

Yahoo! buying Tumblr is a big deal, so The New York Times went all out with its coverage today. There’s a piece about Yahoo! moving into the old Times building on 43rd Street, but the most noticeable piece is in the Business section. There Times readers can find a giant replica of a Tumblr dashboard, complete with headlines and articles about the acquisition. It’s a cool and creative way to discuss the news.

There’s also a photo in the dashboard of Marissa Mayer laughing with David Karp (Tumblr’s founder and really, really rich dude).¬†Oh, and on A1, the Times ran a piece about how Karp dropped out of school.

He was still home schooled though! So you know, do your homework, kids.
