Our goal was to have a news story about StumbleUpon up and running before we got the homepage stumbled, but it’s too late now. We’ve been researching the Web 2.0, social media “wild card” (that’s one of the angles we were considering) for several weeks now. Tons of story ideas, but with a website like StumbleUpon, if you’re going to write something, it better be the right story.
The effect that SU has had on the Internet has been unique and engrossing. On the surface, it shouldn’t work. People want to see what they want to see, not what others want them to see, right? It just isn’t so.
