Bloggers around the world would agree that Tumblr is the coolest blogging platform in the best that exist. But know about the man (or the boy?) who created it all and you’d say that the site isn’t quite as cool as the founder himself. Meet David Karp, the 28 year old founder of Tumblr. By the way, Karp found the site when he was a 20 year old kid, a time when most teenagers would still be struggling with their petty teenage issues.Sometime back, David sold Tumblr to Yahoo for a $1.1 billion and continues to act as a CEO of the company. For creating a beautiful blogging world with 225 million users all by himself at a very young age, David Karp was named the ‘Best young tech entrepreneur’ by Business Week and as one of the top 35 entrepreneurs of the world by MIT review.
David Karp was what you could call a regular New York city-bred kid. He was born to Michael Karp, the television composer and Barbara Ackerman, a high school teacher. He went to Calhoun school, the same school where his mother worked as a science teacher up until he was in eighth grade. By then, he was already designing websites for money. And this made him drop out from school, resorting to home-schooling just so that he could save time. He did plan on going to one of the league universities later in his life but some great opportunities came his way and changed his plans completely.
