For those of you who aren't familiar with it, StumbleUpon is a discovery engine that shows you random web pages based upon categories that you like. It learns very quickly what you like and don't like. It's channel surfing for the web. If you're interested in discovering the hidden gems on the web, including new ideas, articles, pictures, videos, music, games, etc., StumbleUpon is a must-have. (Although, be warned: StumbleUpon is highly addictive and you will often find yourself spending hours using it.)

StumbleUpon Toolbar OptionsStumbleUpon has a toolbar plug-in for Firefox that is a must-have. For the longest time, I would click the Stumble button to bring up a random, new page, upvote it or downvote it, and then repeat the process. It requires two clicks as well as moving the mouse between the buttons.

However, today I learned that, within the toolbar's options and on the Configuration tab, there are two Stumble After Rating settings that you can check to automatically stumble to the next page after clicking an upvote or downvote. Not only does this save you a click but it also saves you the effort of moving the mouse to the Stumble button.

About braincrave


We all admire beauty, but the mind ultimately must be stimulated for maximum arousal. Longevity in relationships cannot occur without a meeting of the minds. And that is what Braincrave is: a dating venue where minds meet. Learn about the thoughts of your potential match on deeper topics... topics that spawn your own insights around what you think, the choices you make, and the actions you take.

We are a community of men and women who seek beauty and stimulation through our minds. We find ideas, education, and self-improvement sexy. We think intelligence is hot. But Braincrave is more than brains and I.Q. alone. We are curious. We have common sense. We value and offer wisdom. We experiment. We have great imaginations. We devour literacy. We are intellectually honest. We support and encourage each other to be better.

You might be lonely but you aren't alone.

Sep, 2017 update: Although Braincrave resulted in two confirmed marriages, the venture didn't meet financial targets. Rather than updating our outdated code base, we've removed all previous dating profiles and retained the articles that continue to generate interest. Moving to valME.io's platform supports dating profiles (which you are welcome to post) but won't allow typical date-matching functionality (e.g., location proximity, attribute similarity).

The Braincrave.com discussion group on Second Life was a twice-daily intellectual group discussions typically held at 12:00 PM SLT (PST) and 7:00 PM SLT. The discussions took place in Second Life group chat but are no longer formally scheduled or managed. The daily articles were used to encourage the discussions.
