  1. After reading your article Peter, one might think so. Great review.
    As an avid StumbleUpon user ( registered since mid-2006 ) I asked Stephanie to include the website in her “Social Media” week. Looks like a funny coincidence.
    Having said that, perhaps Stephanie was inspired by your post?

    You know I’m kidding.
    With the Internet, tracking an “original” idea is darn near impossible; assuming there are really any individual ideas left in the world… but that topic delves into the existential, philosophical and possibly even metaphysical and I’m not sure I SPELLED those words right let alone try to explain them :))
    The ultimate answer I guess is that Stumble Upon had a good “marketing” that resulted in two blog posts… which is a result of the SU putting out a great product… that’s the power of referral marketing!
    Best always,
