This Is Like Crack Only Better

stumble crack

Stumble, Baby.
Where have you been all of my life? How did I ever surf without you?

StumbleUpon is a great fun and if you haven't tried it then it's high time you did. It's a new approach to surfing based on your specific interests. Getting started is quick and easy. Visit The Stumble site, install their browser plugin and take a few minutes to register. You will be asked to check some options to help define your interests. And no, boobs is not one of the options (you big perv).

When you are done with the installation just restart your browser. A nice little stumble icon appears. Each time you click it a page (selected based on your interests and the recommendations of other surfers with similar interests) will appear.

You'll love it. It's like having a best friend that sends you the the coolest links, videos, and pictures on the web. You also have the option to 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down' a page. Rate and recommend pages you really enjoy (push the good content) and tailor your browsing experience. You can also tag and share your finds with others. Feeling social? Set up your profile and find people with similar interests.

I'm not kidding. It's just like crack...only better.

My Blog Gets Its 15 minutes


Wow. My little blog nearly exploded from all of the traffic from my Flickr post. I mean, holy freakin cow.

I think my CEO is planning to do some sort of follow-up on his blog ( later this week.

We did finally conclude that:

1. Flickr does not alter your original photo
2. Flickr does enhance the other sizes and openly admits it (not to mention it's way more sinister than I thought).
3. Zoto 3.0 will be auto-enhancing photos when we launch in March but we will also have an option to to disable this feature.

I think best part of the hoopla was reading all of the comments. I was really blown away by the amount of response. So thanks for all of your comments. Even the anonymous ones (you silly weenies). I also realize, in hindsight, that calling someone a numnut in response to a negative reddit comment is, ahem, possibly a tad unprofessional. And as for that guy who asked me if I passed the turing test, ha-freakin-ha.

Oh, and the photo from my flickr post is not soup. It's my italian chicken chili. The recipe is here.

Ok. Time to go back to blogging about patterns and stuff.
