It’s official: StumbleUpon Video rocks

Posted in StumbleUpon, Technology by engtech on December 15, 2006

I’m not a big fan of YouTube, because the signal to noise ratio is so high. I am a fan of StumbleUpon. It is a quick way to find interesting and useful websites. They’ve released a new service for videos only, and it’s great. I was immediately getting relevant results because I am already a Stumble Upon user. The results speak for themselves

Stumble #1: A song I like.

Stumble #2: A guy who hooked up his synth to a tesla coil.

Stumble #3: A monkey giving a dog a hand job.

Stumble #4: Leonard Nemoy singing the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.

Stumble #5: Battlefield 1942: The Pwned Life.

Stumble #6: News report on Yahoo releasing details about a blogger to China.

Stumble #7: Wes Borg… Internet Helpdesk.

Stumble #8: Philips Light Emitting T-shirts commercial.

Stumble #9: Star Wars George Lucas in Love.

Stumble #10: SNL skit: Jack Black’s new birthday song.

Verdict: it’s good. Those are pretty relevant results to my interest for my first time using the service. Read more about StumbleUpon video here. Now if only there was a preference so I could only view videos from YouTube. Google Video takes too long to buffer.

    The goddamn moneky swore he’d only keep the video for personal use.

    Maybe the monkey needs an audience to get off?

    StumbleUpon Video… Yep It’s Good

    StumbleUpon, is a great service that allows users to install a toolbar in their browser and “stumble” around the web. But rather than being random it sends you to sites that are A: Tailored to your preferences and interests and B: Where you…

  6. [...] it out it can be described as “channel surfing for the Internet” (especially their video-only version). You stumble to a random page on the Internet, mark that you like or don’t like it and then [...]
