We've completely forgotten how to make user interfaces, haven't we?

Today's example is the permanent link for a tumblr post, which is the cute little maybe 16x16 pixels folded-corner-of-paper icon that only appears when you mouseover a post, and has absolutely nothing to suggest that it might even be a link. Let alone the link to the current post.

Compare with, I don't know, just about any other blogging platform where the post title is the permanent link. And even if there is no title (such as on this post), then it's usually something like the post date or even something saying "link", and in any case it looks like a hyperlink.
