This is the way the world ends / Not with a bang but a whimper. —T. S. Eliot
BIBERACH, GERMANY—Late last week, Christian Neukirchen’s influential tumbleblog Anarchaia breathed its last.
Anarchaia took the well established blog form and turned it into a multimedia stream of consciousness featuring photographs, poetry, lyrics, and links. Topics ranged from the merely curious to the highly technical. It managed to maintain the same visual theme throughout its lifespan which included a half-dozen posts almost daily.
The term tumblelog was coined in mid-2005 by Why the Lucky Stiff on his RedHanded blog.
