I’m a long time user of the Tumblr micro-blogging service. The site really works to create a community among bloggers, and as a result you’ll find many great friendships that have started through the Tumblr community. I knew that the Logitech Loft would be the perfect place to host a Tumblr Meetup—an in-real-life gathering of Tumblr users in and around Los Angeles.
After posting about the event online, our RSVP list was fully booked after only an hour. Just goes to show that 1) Tumblr offers a great community, and 2) Tumblr users love to party. It was really great to see guests meeting people that they knew – from their blogs – for the first time. And, thanks to Logitech Revue, everyone was able to show off their Tumblr accounts throughout the party.
As you know, Revue does a great job at providing a complete web browsing experience—guests were able to browse each other’s blogs, watch personal videos, and share their online content without a computer in sight. I think this is a great example of how Logitech Revue can provide a social experience within the living room. While we’ve all grown accustomed to TV providing a fairly singular, private experience, a connection to the internet instantly transforms it into a communication and sharing device. Whether you’re a hardcore blogger or just a casual internet browser, you’ll definitely find that Revue puts a new spin on how you define “watching TV.”
