AJR covers the news media, with a focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and digital storytelling. News organizations said Tumblr helps them connect with audiences and document new experiments in journalism. On a recent day, The Washington Post Twitter account is a drumbeat of news about a Supreme Court pregnancy discrimination case, racial profiling in America and unrest in Ferguson, Mo. Tumblr is a 7-year-old social blogging platform that appears to be catching a second wind since it was purchased by Yahoo last year for $1.1 billion. The paper launched its Tumblr account 2011, but didn’t start actively populating it until February 2014.
Carpenter said the playfulness of her posts doesn’t take away from the important work the Post is doing. Similar to a newsroom that covers multiple beats, Carpenter said the Tumblr account may include a joke with readers in one post and an update on Ebola or ISIS in the next.
Tumblr doesn’t have character limits like Twitter, which opens up opportunities to explore issues and interact with readers in greater depth.
Tumblr works for NPR because it’s a creative platform that is simple to use, said Melody Kramer, an editor and digital strategist for NPR, and one of the six main NPR Tumblr curators. Some other benefits: It’s easy to play with the code to create a customized page design, Kramer said. Recently, journalists Matthew Danzico and Benjamin Zand used Tumblr to document a community meeting in Baton Rouge, La., where they asked residents for story ideas to help them guide their coverage. A screenshot from the BBC Pop Up Tumblr, which documents the efforts of journalists to find story ideas is communities in American that don’t typically get a lot of media coverage. For example, when Boulder, Colo., had its first snowfall of the season, Danzico shot and edited a short video and posted it to Tumblr, a video that would never go on the BBC website or go on air. Shaminder Dulai, Newsweek’s photo director, took over the Newsweek Tumblr in October and is bringing a visual focus to his social media approach.
Dulai’s posts range from the Hong Kong student protestors being carried away by police to focusing on protestor street art in Ferguson, Mo. Dulai is the only person posting to the Tumblr and he hopes that at some point, other section editors will contribute to the Tumblr and post stories from their beats.
Some other news organizations said Tumblr isn’t a part of their core social media strategy, but they consider it a valuable tool for engaging with younger users and other niche audiences. I clicked on this to read how news orgs other than NPR are using Tumblr but I was surprised to see my face pop up on the page.

Can a leading science and technology research university of almost 140 years accelerate its tech transfer efforts to become the anchor institution of Baltimore’s technology community?


When Ron Daniels took the stage in a fourth floor auditorium inside the Johns Hopkins University Medical Center in East Baltimore, he was staring down a veritable Who’s Who of Baltimore city’s tech community: startup founders, the presidents and operators of incubators, people at the helm of deep-pocketed foundations and tech company investors.
It was April 30, 2014, Demo Day for DreamIt Health Baltimore, when nine health IT startups would graduate from a four-month accelerator program backed, in part, by the Johns Hopkins University. But Daniels took it a step further, and told the crowd it is a “fundamental imperative” for the Johns Hopkins University to help build the city’s innovation ecosystem. It was the sort of argot a room full of tech-company-loving spectators would expect from the president of Baltimore’s major research university. Hopkins, put simply, has been lagging mightily in tech transfer compared to its elite peers. A report released in early April by the university’s Committee on the Innovation Ecosystem showed that Hopkins brought in $15.9 million from its technology and intellectual property licensing activities in fiscal year 2012, paltry in comparison to the $162 million taken in by Columbia University, or the $137 million made by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. So here was Ron Daniels, at a day where the focus was on startups and new technology, saying that the Johns Hopkins University had to be an integral part of technology innovation in Charm City.
Licensing revenue increased to $17.9 million, although that still pales compared to revenue numbers from Northwestern University, Duke University, Stanford University and others.
The number of processed invention disclosures increased to 441, a four percent increase from 2012.
Eight startups were formed in 2013 — and five of the DreamIt Health Baltimore startups are affiliated with the Johns Hopkins University either through a licensed tech agreement or through student and faculty connections.
But Mazhari stresses an approach to startup formation that favors quality over quantity — prescient, given that 90 percent of all new startups fail.
Helping build an innovation ecosystem doesn’t always mean pushing for the creation of new startups. FastForward, which Fini said could hold as many as 20 companies, is meant to stop the flow of fleeing commercialization by providing room for Hopkins-based startups to grow. That thinking is now leading Hopkins to explore the possibility of opening a similar sort of incubator in East Baltimore.
In this sense, Johns Hopkins, through technology transfer, is just now making a play to be a hub of innovation much in the same way the University of Maryland BioPark is one for biotech and health IT startups. Andrew Zaleski is a freelance journalist in Philadelphia and the former lead reporter for Technical.ly Baltimore. No idea if they are really doing this weekly, obviously I think some of these girls should be in different spots, but whatever.
The list is growing by the week and the massive amount of hotness can be a bit overwhelming so we’ve decided to cut through the madness and weed the list down to the 20 Sexiest SI Cheerleaders of the Week. The only cheerleaders I like are the flyers who are like 5'1 100 lbs and in great shape. Take for instance, its photo montage of brains, nestled into decrepit-looking jars and adorned with yellowing labels. Social media editors said Tumblr has helped their news organizations engage with readers, connect with a younger audience and document experiments in journalism. Entrepreneur David Karp launched Tumblr in 2007 and it was soon overshadowed by Twitter, which launched a year earlier.
They write and create material for Tumblr and post that on the BBC website, rather than creating BBC content and posting that on Tumblr.
Kate Gardiner, the former director of audience engagement at Newsweek, said earlier this fall that her social media team didn’t have the time to dedicate to a platform that wasn’t a primary traffic driver.


But until then, his primary goal for the Tumblr is to make it visually appealing to readers and drive them back to the website. Nothing against the 90 girls who didn’t make the cut, you are beautiful, but to be on this list you need to be the best. She also served as a replacement on the same network, when necessary, for Robin Meade on Morning Express with Robin Meade.
And Daniels, president of Johns Hopkins, had one message for the startups’ founders anxiously awaiting their turn to present their companies to the crowd of at least 100. For the 34th straight year, Hopkins is number one when it comes to receiving research funding from the federal government. That money represents more than just many zeroes on a check — it also means that new companies are being born from university research, which makes them likely to remain in proximity to those universities.
The question now: can a leading science and technology research university of almost 140 years accelerate its tech transfer efforts to become the anchor institution of Baltimore’s technology community? Mazhari’s job is to connect faculty members with funding resources, other entrepreneurs, incubators around town and mentors who can help guide their fledgling companies. In late 2012 the Whiting School of Engineering opened FastForward, an accelerator program with an accompanying 20,000-square-foot incubator not far from the university’s main Homewood Campus in Charles Village.
An incubator space filled with like-minded entrepreneurs creates density and gives startup founders a reason to stick around Baltimore city — and, hopefully, license technology from Johns Hopkins. At Demo Day for DreamIt Health Baltimore, no one captured that feeling better than Elliot Menschik, a Johns Hopkins graduate and a partner with DreamIt Ventures, from which the four-month health accelerator takes its name. Before moving to Philadelphia in June 2014, he was a contributing writer to Baltimore City Paper and a Tech Check commentator for WYPR 88.1 FM, Baltimore city’s National Public Radio affiliate.
Nothing against the 90 girls who didn’t make the cut, you are beautiful, but to be on this list you need to be the best. But in the past six months, the number of people actively using Tumblr grew by 120 percent, overtaking Pinterest, Instagram and even Facebook in terms of growth, according to Market research firm Global Web Index.
Pick a year and a month and users can browse everything that has been posted in a particular period of time. Of nearly 50 applicants to the program so far, 29 startups have been accepted, and seven of those currently lease offices inside the incubator.
He has written for The Atlantic, Outside, Richmond magazine, Washington City Paper, Baltimore magazine, Baltimore Style magazine, Next City, Grist.org, The Atlantic Cities, and elsewhere.

Some questioned the value of pouring staff resources into populating a platform that can’t compete with the referral power of larger social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
