Keep Stumbling

Discover the best of the web on StumbleUponHave you ever found yourself stumbling upon an idea.? Not too sure how you got there, but somehow through a number of different random thoughts, your mind comes across an idea.  The path may have been twisted, but your mind has somehow navigated through all your seemingly unconnected thoughts and made a synthesis of all of it.  You may not have noticed this phenomenon, but it is happening constantly.  Now this may seem like a lot of work.  Some may be thinking, “wow all this time my brain spends stumbling across random ideas is a little bit of a  waste.”  Wish you didn’t have to do that work yourself??  Well now you can! With the new website StumbleUpon.com, you can click stumble at the top of any webpage and it will bring you to another website and idea.  The website uses your preferences and likes/dislikes in order to create a huge sites and topics that are interesting to you.  This site does a lot of the “thinking” for you by leading you down certain paths and choosing what you will view.  Despite doing some of the work for you, this site is actually incredibly helpful in introducing new topics or ideas that can stimulate new thought that would have otherwise been unlikely.  So whether you’re doing it in your mind or through this new website, make sure you keep stumbling.

    I love stumbleupon! I always find the most interesting and entertaining websites. It amazes me how it can consistently bring me to sites I love based on my previous interests. Quite impressive if you ask me!

    I love stumbleupon too! Except it many times will keep me for hours because it finds the perfect things that are interesting and enertaining (as Katie said) and will distract me from everything else. But I guess that means its definitely doing its job!

    I just went on stumbleupon for the first time today and it was pretty cool. I was impressed with how accurate and entertaining the web pages presented to me were. But at the same time, I was laughing to myself at how lazy I am–I needed a website to find other websites to entertain me… What is this world coming to?
