WOW. Mr Camp I wish you all the best.
But wow, seriously this article is a week old and there is a handful of reviews - about an SU article of this import...
Once upon time say about two years ago when I was active in SU this article would be a hot property within hours - now days later it comes to this?
And I found out about this via Tumblr.
Bring back the blogging. I say this as a user old enough to have paid albeit voluntarily for the Service back in the day. Make this as easy to use for blogging as Tumblr coupled with Web discovery, ie an update of the original model and I'd be happy to come back and hell yeah I'd tip $10 into the pot as I did in years gone by.
It demonstrates how SU as a community has declined since it abandoned that model.
Serina sent me this.
Reminds me of the hoops I have to jump through to post to SU.
Image to big. Resize, now I can photoblog, want to give credit, got to write long hand a click through link - possible thanks to my limited html literacy.
Odd I used Stumble sooooo much, even so I really thought hitting the button was - could exist as an exercise - independent of the social networking side - the blogging activity.
But as time passes and the two latter functions have been ignored and left to wither on the vine at SU I find I now do the former - hit the SU button less and less.
Weeks past before I even bothered to install SU on a second computer.
And suddenly I realise I rarely stumble at all.

From the page: "The brother of the young woman whom Osama bin Laden took as his last wife has declared that the Arab world's future now lies in democracy, not radical Islam. "
No Apologies this "From the page:" is the whole post, but I want it here. I want it on my blog. I want you to read it.
And I'm going to add emphasis.
From the page: Thought a couple of things were quite interesting in this interview.
SU is of course, the best ( and really only) discovery engine on the market. Good for you.
15 million users. 4 million ACTIVE users. The data mining..the content, the discovery comes from these active users.
Now you all know I am not great with numbers ;-) But in MY stumbleworld...amongst the people that I knew, the active stumblers, the discoverers, the pioneers of Stumbleupon..well, they are leaving. They are losing heart.
Charles says "I'm not the earliest number, but I am pretty early to the SU party. I've lost heart."
It's ironic that as you increase the "social" features of SU..you mentioned integration with Facebook and twitter...it seems to me that you have fragmented the core community that I knew.
You see, in a community, people get to know each other. And, we got to know each other through..our blogs. I know you hate blogging here..but it was a way for people to express themselves...it kept them engaged in the community, it kept them here, and stumbling. It was their complete online experience.
Charles says "Sure SU was my one stop - stop, my goto place on the net, where I began and ended my day, most days. Now it's an occasional thing, often just to see who has spammed my inbox with a please subscribe to me PM."
There were characters, there were really interesting people, there were local experts, there were poets and writers and artists and scientists..the whole gamut of human experience....and you could learn about people because they were able to express themselves on their blogs. Nowadays, I can glean what people are about by seeing their tags, or seeing their favourites, but I miss those days when peoples blogs declared who they are.
I can't understand why you have chosen to make blogging so hard. You don't host anything. Photoblogging is hotlinking. Images have to be hosted on photobucket or other services.
I don't understand why SU chooses to be less than it can ( and used ) to be.
But that's just me.
And most I know.
And all the departed.
Charles says "I'm mainly found on Tumblr."
From the page: " Michael Moran writes for Bleeding Cool:
If you窶re anxious about reading a review and learning too much about this film but still want to know whether the cinema ticket窶s worth your hard-earned money here窶s a summary: Thor is a brilliant, epic, and often very funny superhero movie that is very much worth your while. It窶s so huge in scope that the big-screen experience is more than a luxury, it窶s the only way to enjoy the daring, dizzying scope of Kenneth Branagh窶s vision. See it."
Ever since SU dumped the friend system with it's friend request system my inbox is always full of this spam.
My heart sinks when I see the flag go up on the icon because 9/10 it's another friend me spam,.. sorry lets be mutually subscribers who share.
Gone are the days when I smiled knowing the chances were that it was an old SU friend hitting me up for a bit chat.
This and the feeling that despite asking for feedback SU doesn't listen, has led me to be a lot less active. Now the only thing I seem to do on SU every day is eventually get around to seeing who has spammed by inbox.

From the page: "Nuclear fatalities in the last ten years: 7
Wind farm fatalities in the last ten years: 44.
In those ten years nuclear provided thirty times the energy of wind. This means in the last decade, nuclear has been around 200 times safer than wind on an energy produced/accidents basis."
