In my early years on the internet, I came across StumbleUpon and it changed my life. Bored? Go to StumbleUpon. Want to find a weird video site? Go to StumbleUpon.

It was perfect for finding content with just a click when social media wasn’t yet at its peak. The site sadly shut down in 2018 and some of its features have been ported to a new product called Mix.com. However, I came across a Slack app earlier this… This story continues at The Next Web Or just read more coverag ..read more

This sounds like an email but in a chat format. In June, the… This story continues a ..read more
