Meanwhile, The Archivist surges on. Thanks Tumblr peep.
Tumblr’s Storyboard was a daily read for many Mashable editors, so we’re offering to publish some of its planned stories in the wake of its shut-down.
This is a fantastic project by former Newsweekers and friends Ryan Jones, Ronik Design and FilmAid — a documentary project to tell the stories of the largest refugee camp in the world, Dadaab. It’s also hands-down the most innovative use of Tumblr as a website I’ve seen. Please check out Dadaab Stories (and the accompanying Storyboard feature).
Congrats to David Gerlach and the folks over at Blank on Blank for the launch of their fantastic new animated series with PBS Digital. I love this project: journalists rummaging through old drawers to find forgotten gems from old interview tapes.
As a former Post guy, this is so depressing. This is where Watergate became a thing.

The worst possible thing the Post could do right now is move to Arlington. It’s an old building and getting around it was like a maze, but it has its charms.

I have no doubt that few readers will stick around for the “new chapter,” as Tina calls it (let’s be honest). But this ode to the magazine that was is worth reading, if sad.
Belle Harbor, NY: Photographer Ben Lowy documents Sandy’s fury along the Rockaway beachfront, where residents complain about the lack of help from the Red Cross and National Guard. Lowy will be covering the Sandy recovery efforts for Tumblr for the next week, via our editorial site, Storyboard.
