FJP: While we’re in the screenshot above we’d like to note that we’re not one of Tumblr’s hires. Nor do we imagine any of the others pictured here are.
Via the New York Times:
Chris Mohney, a senior vice president for content at BlackBook Media, will be the site’s editor in chief. Jessica Bennett, a senior writer and editor at Newsweek and The Daily Beast, will be the executive editor and, she said, a kind of Tumblr correspondent.
“Basically, if Tumblr were a city of 42 million,” Ms. Bennett said, referring to the number of Tumblr blogs that exist, “I’m trying to figure out how we cover the ideas, themes and people who live in it.”
Their work — both documenting the Tumblr service and marketing it to users — will appear on the Web site’s staff blog and on a separate part of tumblr.com that has not been set up yet, a Tumblr spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Thank you for sharing your concerns about the Missing E browser extension.
We encourage a thriving ecosystem of applications that work with Tumblr. But, we must also ensure those applications don’t compromise the stability of Tumblr, the security of Tumblr data, or the safety and privacy of Tumblr users.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us.
Thanks so much,
