David Karp


David Karp


(New York, USA, 1986)

Share anything effortlessly. This is the essence of Tumblr, the microblogging platform created in 2007 which today has more than 50 million blogs registered, outnumbering Wordpress in terms of users. Tumblr was founded by David Karp from his bedroom in a New York apartment when he was just 21 years old. At the age of 11, after reading HTML for Dummies, this ‘Internet prodigy’ –as the trade press have named him began to develop web pages for neighbourhood businesses. At 15, he convinced his parents to let him continue his education at home and learn directly from the world of technology. At 17, after having worked as a technological consultant for Urbanbaby.com, he saved up enough money to spend five months in Tokyo. He represents a generation raised on daily Internet use – early entrepreneurs looking for new paradigms based on social networks and sharing content and resources.
