From what I have heard so far. They are going to make tumblr specific themes in WordPress. So it seems like their theme market within tumblr would earn them some money for sure. They already got rid of adult content so I am guessing this way tumblr would be put across as medium alternative.

We could probably do with a less sucky alternatives to Medium tbh, although I won't hold my breath that Wordpress will be able to do it well.

WordPress is like swiss knife so they try to be alternative to every X out there. Considering medium has changed their TOS more than any other place out there. There are people who don't want to be there any more.

Now they bought PocketCasts


Which is kind of weird, because I started using them a month or two ago when Apple **** the bed with their recent iOS update and broke all my podcast data in the native Apple Podcast app (which it seems they've only been updating in order to roll out their new monetisation features for podcasts)
