Tumblr is using scala? Any idea for what? I know ideeli was using jruby. Did they start using scala as well?

Tumblr is doing their new backend services in scala, they are starting to ramp up hiring, they want to do a lot of stuff like twitter so your seeing them do a lot of hbase also. Ideeli told me they were considering using it for backend services. Obviously I was interviewing lately so I got to hear all the recent gossip ;)
