Using it is as simple as you thought it would be: just click the "Try It" button on the homepage, and you'll be taken to a random Kickstarter project. Click the "Kickstumbler and Next" buttons on the top corners of the page to see other random Kickstarter projects, from art to technology, publishing, fashion, and more. You can even narrow down your stumbles to one of Kickstarter's 13 categories, five cities, see only video, or projects that are popular, just launched, needing funding, or ending soon. You can even tweet or "like" your favorites on Facebook to spread the word. Kickstumbler is free, so put your dollars to good use by funding some cool projects!
And his name is Ralph Wellington. I kid you not. I find some amazing things through StumbleUpon, and this little guy is no exception. I don't know if he is still around or what has been going on since his last blog post in 2006, but I'd love to find out, cause he makes me so happy. Seriously, I cannot resist this face!
Ralph is dubbed "The Happiest Turtle in the World" because of his perpetual smile. And it looks like he's a quick mover too, from the "action" video that's posted on his website. Check him out. You may just fall in love too!
If you've spent time on StumbleUpon, then you know how it sweetly liberates you from your spare time, but it can also lead to worthwhile discoveries. Imagine then, if you could do this with music as well. Brilliant idea, right? Well, don't credit me, because it already exists: StumbleAudio.
StumbleAudio has a pleasing, coverflow-like interface, and like StumbleUpon before it, you just keep telling it what you like and don't like, and clicking stumble when you want to try out a new song.
