median: tumblr ESTD 2007 david: 10 years ago this Sunday, with modest expectations and little fanfare, Marco and I launched a side-project called Tumblr—a place where anyone could “post anything and customize everything.” Why did the world need Tumblr? I wasn’t sure it did. But I did. 2006 The net is vast and infinite. The web browser has become a multimedia powerhouse. “Social media” is upending news and entertainment. One-year-old YouTube has created a phenomenon of “viral video.” Google hits for “podcast” have jumped from 100-thousand to 100-million in less than a year. Twitter has just launched. And the “blogosphere” has become the voice of millions, with the total number of blogs now doubling every six months. Dope. But for all this progress, some of the internet’s brightest promise is fading. The wide-open and whimsical frontier of the World Wide Web is being reshaped by strict, narrow platforms. Our pictures, videos, music, journals, articles, links, status updates, are spread across a dozen different networks—each specializing in a single medium. The infinitely expressive canvas of HTML has been eclipsed by directories of vanilla-white profile pages. Our digital identities are fractured and engineers make the rules. Enter Tumblehub Tumblespot Tumblr, a modest solution inspired by an avant-garde community of bloggers calling themselves “tumbleloggers.” The premise, simply, to make space for each individual’s full range of expression. A median between the author’s unfiltered and editorial voice. With complete control over design and presentation, so anyone can create something that truly represents themselves and that is truly unique. 2007 After four months of running my own blog on Tumblr, making tweaks and improvements, we open to the public. Hundreds of thousands of people begin using Tumblr to share some of the most eclectic, clever, and beautiful things we’ve ever seen on the internet. We are humbled and awestruck. Racing to keep up, every feature we add attempts to stretch the canvas a little bit more, pushed by this community’s constant and boundless creativity. Five months in, you have captured our hearts. We work up the courage to pursue Tumblr full time. With a new purpose and brave investors, we close down our web development business and reopen as Tumblr, Inc. 2017 336 million Tumblrs. 146 billion posts. And counting. A generation of artists, writers, creators, curators, and crusaders that have redefined our culture. I can’t say this enough: Thank you, thank you, thank you for making Tumblr everything that it is. For everything we’ve built, and all its shortcomings, you have managed to make this one of the most creative, lively, thoughtful, supportive, and open-minded corners of the world. We have learned so much from you and been so moved by your voices. The Next Ten Years The internet is at a crossroads again. Internet culture has become the prevalent, global culture. These networks expose us to new ideas and information but–too often–trap us in bubbles. The world has been compressed, and we are constantly challenged to reconcile our differences. With so many barriers to digital expression now lifted, and nearly all modes of media supported across all platforms, there is now an unprecedented opportunity to dedicate this space to freedom, truth, expanded perspective, and positive influence in the world. Tumblr’s focus over the next decade will shift accordingly. Expression has been and always will be a foundational part of Tumblr—and our roadmap this year will not disappoint—but it is now more urgent than ever to empower positive and productive connections across the communities that thrive here. To create an environment where people are truly safe to be themselves. To ensure positive discourse rises above toxicity. And to protect the free exchange of ideas, from which truth will emerge. We still have so much to prove and so much we’ve promised you. With this renewed focus, we are determined to deliver. One Last Thing From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone working on, and who has ever worked on, Tumblr.

In Spain, it costs $7,371.“</p><h2> The Reality:</h2><p> First, note that Spain has a single-payer health care system run by the government. Their system requires, by law, that the state provide healthcare at “no out-of-pocket” cost to the individual. (except for prescription drugs.) Thus, costs are incurred by taxpayers. </p><p> One reason the cost of surgery is different between the two countries? Incomes are lower in Spain than they are in the U.S. This means the labor component that factors into your hip replacement is severely reduced.</p><p> The Median salary of an Orthopedic surgeon in Spain, for instance, is only $64,152 a year. The same position pays about $432,552 a year in the U.S.</p><p> The labor component for surgery in America is therefore roughly 6.75 times greater than it is in Spain. If one were to adjust the cost of a hip replacement surgery in Spain by accounting for what the surgeon SHOULD be getting paid, we’d see a final price much closer to what’s charged in America. </p><p> WHAT’S THE COST RELATIVE TO MEDIAN INCOME?</p><p> Spain’s Median Household Annual Income, adjusted for purchasing parity, was $17,191 in 2011.<br/> The United States’ Median Household Annual Income, on the other hand, was $50,054 in 2011.</p><p> If the average cost of a hip replacement in Spain is $7,371, that’s roughly 43% of that country’s median household income. Note, that price is billed to the taxpayer. As we’ll demonstrate however, in America, the cost is less burdensome. </p><p> Now, there is no such thing as an “un-insured” price for medical care in Spain, since everyone is insured via the government. Therefore, Spain’s cost must be compared to what INSURED individuals are charged in America. The Average Cost of the same hip replacement surgery in the U.S. is $39,299 (per our sources). This would represent a whopping 78% of median household income IF - and only if - people actually paid it, but they don’t. Most of the cost is billed to private insurance companies, which sustain themselves via profitable investments mitigating the need to profit directly off of consumers. Only about $3,000 is ever billed to an insured individual. That’s around 6% of median household income. </p><p> One might point out that while the costs are mostly incurred by private insurers in America, those insurers merely disperse such costs amongst their customers not unlike the Spanish government passing costs onto taxpayers. This is a fair critique, and for the sake of argument, we can attempt to adjust for that. </p><p> For 2011, premiums for employer-sponsored family-health coverage were roughly $15,500. (Paid largely by the employer) On average, workers, however, only paid about $4300 of that. For single (non-family) coverage, workers paid even less, with an average contribution of only about $950. [x] If we were to include one year’s worth of insurance premium contributions with the cost of this surgery, the cost in America would still only range from $3950 - $7300. That only represents 7.9% - 14.5% of our 2011 median household income, which is significantly less than Spain’s 43%.

 First, note that Spain has a single-payer health care system run by the
 government. Their system requires, by law, that the state provide 
healthcare at “no out-of-pocket” cost to the individual. (except for 
prescription drugs.) Thus, costs are incurred by taxpayers.  </p><p> One
 reason the cost of surgery is different between the two countries?  
Incomes are lower in Spain than they are in the U.S. This means the 
labor component that factors into your hip replacement is severely 
reduced.</p><p> The Median salary of an Orthopedic surgeon in Spain, for
 instance, is only $64,152 a year. The same position pays about $432,552
 a year in the U.S.</p><p> The labor component for surgery in America is
 therefore roughly 6.75 times greater than it is in Spain. If one were 
to adjust the cost of a hip replacement surgery in Spain by accounting 
for what the surgeon SHOULD be getting paid, we’d see a final price much
 closer to what’s charged in America.  </p><p> WHAT’S THE COST RELATIVE TO MEDIAN INCOME?</p><p> Spain’s Median Household Annual Income, adjusted for purchasing parity, was $17,191 in 2011.<br/> The United States’ Median Household Annual Income, on the other hand, was $50,054 in 2011.</p><p>
 If the average cost of a hip replacement in Spain is $7,371, that’s 
roughly 43% of that country’s median household income. Note, that price 
is billed to the taxpayer. As we’ll demonstrate however, in America, the
 cost is less burdensome. </p><p> Now, there is no such thing as an 
“un-insured” price for medical care in Spain, since everyone is insured 
via the government. Therefore, Spain’s cost must be compared to what 
INSURED individuals are charged in America. The Average Cost of the same
 hip replacement surgery in the U.S. is $39,299 (per our sources).  This
 would represent a whopping 78% of median household income IF - and only
 if - people actually paid it, but they don’t. Most of the cost is 
billed to private insurance companies, which sustain themselves via 
profitable investments mitigating the need to profit directly off of 
consumers. Only about $3,000 is ever billed to an insured individual. 
That’s around 6% of median household income. </p><p> One might point out
 that while the costs are mostly incurred by private insurers in 
America, those insurers merely disperse such costs amongst their 
customers not unlike the Spanish government passing costs onto 
taxpayers. This is a fair critique, and for the sake of argument, we can
 attempt to adjust for that.  </p><p> For 2011, premiums for 
employer-sponsored family-health coverage were roughly $15,500. (Paid 
largely by the employer) On average, workers, however, only paid about 
$4300 of that. For single (non-family) coverage, workers paid even less,
 with an average contribution of only about $950. [x] If we were to 
include one year’s worth of insurance premium contributions with the 
cost of this surgery, the cost in America would still only range from  
$3950 - $7300. That only represents 7.9% - 14.5% of our 2011 median 
household income, which is significantly less than Spain’s 43%. In fact,
 for the burden of a U.S. family to match that of Spain, we’d have to 
include, not only the out-of-pocket expense from the surgery, but also 
over 4 years of health insurance contributions. For individual coverage,
 we’d have to include 19.5 years of health insurance contributions! 
Luckily, our burden isn’t 43% of our median household income. </p><h2> WHAT’S THE CONCLUSION?</h2><p>
 Yes, the absolute cost is lower in Spain than it is in America, but 
that cost represents a burden far greater than what we experience in the
 U.S.  Meanwhile, in the United States, depending on how you count it, 
people only pay an amount equivalent to about 6%, 7.9%, or 14.5% what 
they earn annually.  When Spain’s burden is 43%, which system sounds 
less burdensome to YOU?<br/> —————————-<br/> Sources: <br/><a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.salaryexplorer.com%2Fsalary-survey.php%3Fjob%3D994%26jobtype%3D3%26gender%3Dm%26loctype%3D1%26loc%3D203&amp;h=JAQFvcvTOAQH7ZRfnwmS7NNEEu5HJUfydJQymIdu_t68lMg&amp;enc=AZPZyj0NReNb807keEKuTPW5Zc8ONlHriOBnqNjp_4pYOHA-Z4LNhac6xVepItYw1t2KPkJ9IHt6FFhn452_o29emowg4G2sX8LziIZCnJxlYMvjljOqi2xAcBvO2n67lrcMNaBS3BhRT4-S9adhoftpSDiUNCV5QAYq42UoiGwYp9-16owUA9UF6eEjZYunhPs&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://www.salaryexplorer.com/salary-survey.php…</a></p><p> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.npr.org%2Ftemplates%2Fstory%2Fstory.php%3FstoryId%3D112014770&amp;h=LAQEsg9VXAQFwotpcEQoZZK3NRwUun6wL2bDTRa5aBqd6vg&amp;enc=AZPCCdAPstZvalT4mAtoA46dEyUog5lwvXO4M0L4Oer3XGb6nPoovWD6IcujzshuZcmY-oJtDZg9x26JYmJHE7KnYwhqDefoFzLL2bFDHW1P91r2_fBqyuDAvKSQtYyK6VYcWd-o-Sc2nB0o5ZzyUekjnyPJEVtXZm2tntpyVjNccK8hDzKMtdR-dsWAVYbXB3Y&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php…</a></p><p> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ine.es%2Fen%2Fdaco%2Fdaco42%2Fetcl%2Fetcl0412_en.pdf&amp;h=OAQFGXKQPAQFwLOZpsxTntZ4lwKiqfQkh_uc5yobV6le0iA&amp;enc=AZMTgp-PsHVSHlhvH3WIDCJkEoutGi3xv4F-sz_s1S1C2PG9vVYS9Ck3iT-Rj2LBWv-q2aJlYNY4wW7aiWIHqD5OJ0eq3erC6i1er92ZGLYgbmqzOjBhU2SUP1opihR4zhqlKzRo3DCI5ce32QRfH6OIvUa8zr8IdTr1wmdzDs9YjyQtTD0JfRf45s3k1Y7XYy4&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://www.ine.es/en/daco/daco42/etcl/etcl0412_en.pdf</a></p><p> <a href="http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fstats.oecd.org%2FIndex.aspx%3FDataSetCode%3DIDD&amp;h=cAQGSs6HyAQGkxsdSUp97tqc-deK1iQtU-A6Wqng-u8U0Rg&amp;enc=AZPGImFXgUez1viYoTMZGnhZvfozAfQUDpXN6aaMKD1tKwZ72SjKwc8hzQegbD76-J8ra8NOTQYunqDa98BxhRfPR8CFgYvWj4TrTvqA4Lf_xk-t9hUV3AMiZONtiV2mzOurb3w9f0Gp1VRiVa9SHRuO39JAzDANVYD0d_UsdZ5Fmhi0Tn4jIuTK--l5HnlJDYU&amp;s=1" rel="nofollow">http://stats.oecd.org/Index.aspx?DataSetCode=IDD</a></p><p> <a href="http://health.costhelper.com/hip-replacement.htmlanted=all&amp;_r=0" rel="nofollow">http://health.costhelper.com/hip-replacement.htmlanted=all&amp;…</a></p><p> <a href="http://www.justlanded.com/english/Spain/Articles/Jobs/Doctors" rel="nofollow">http://www.justlanded.com/engli…/Spain/Articles/Jobs/Doctors</a></p><p>
