StumbleUpon discovered web sites based on my interests. The personalized recommendation engine learned what I liked, and brought me more.
It was easy. And FREE.
Today, having once again fallen into a blogging rut, I went to visit StumbleUpon only to find out that it has been gobbled up and transformed into a website called Mix
Much like its ancestor, Mix promises: "All your favorite things. All in one place. Mix learns what you love to show you even more."
After I fed it my interests in the web, nerd culture and gizmos, Mix showed me dozens of articles like:
Six artists who are shaping the future of AI
Top 10 free iPhone only apps that you will not find on Android
The five most worrying trends in artificial intelligence right now
Mix - I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
