Today @ PC World: StumbleUpon Launches a New Way to Waste Time

Today @ PC World: StumbleUpon Launches a New Way to Waste Time
You probably know the concept: You install the StumbleUpon toolbar in your browser, click the button and you're taken to a random web page that was recommended by another Stumbler.
OK, here's my take on it. This is exactly the sort of thing that eventually gets overrun by companies pushing their own websites. In other words, the people at StumbleUpon have the following business model: to hell with browser hijacks... we can get people to hijack their own browsers. The more I look at the human race, the more evidence I find that the genes for intelligence are recessive.
