Name Every Hall of Famer
Location Austin, TX
Summer Anne Burton is drawing a picture of every member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. That’s 295 drawings, each studded with annotations, stats, and quotes, in the order they were inducted. Starting last year with Ty Cobb, who was inducted in 1936, today she’s up to 1978 with Eddie Mathews. Summer got the idea after posting drawings of baseball players on her blog. As she told ESPN.com, “I had some old Astros programs that my grandmother found in her garage and gave to me, so I started drawing all these old Astros players I’d never heard of before, and I got really into it. And then it hit me as a fully formed idea: I’m just gonna draw every Hall of Famer.” Summer also enjoys bad TV, good books, and tacos.

We’re heading to Austin for SXSW! We’ll be down there for all of Film, Interactive and Music and would love to hang out.
Are you going to be there too? Let’s us know and we’ll send more details about our SXSW plans.
One of our service providers just suffered a major network outage, reducing our web capacity significantly for the past two hours.
We’re frustrated with the amount of time it took to resolve this issue, but are more disappointed that this issue had such a dramatic impact on our service. We’re already working to remove this component as a single point of failure.
Our deepest apologies for letting you down tonight.
In addition to this very official Tumblr Staff blog and our charmingly factual About page, you may already be familiar with our official Engineering blog, which shines a light on technical developments of interest to the Tumblr population. Today we’re rolling out four more departmental Tumblrs showing how we live and work, as well as better communicating with the community about what we’re doing.
The Editorial blog previews stories and features in progress from this new and still secretive organization (have you submitted to the Storyboard tag yet?). The International blog gives you a taste of our globetrotting efforts (did you know Tumblr serves nine languages, with more on the way?). The Ministry of Design represents our aesthetics corps (lately tripled in size and militancy). And the Support blog provides a wealth of tips, insight, and advice about how our friendly little town of 50-million-plus gets on and gets along.
More of these departmental Tumblrs may evolve and appear, and all should be considered works in progress — by turns serious and useful as well as creatively stimulating and amusing. Take a look and let us know what you think.
