This evening I’m going to attend the StumbleUpon’s 10 Million Stumblers Party. Wow — 10 million people using StumbleUpon is a major milestone for a company that has gone through so many ups and downs. I remember the first time co-founder Garrett Camp stopped by for a cup of coffee at the Starbucks right across from Business 2.0’s office, where I was working at the time.raised money and became the hot new thing
I always thought StumbleUpon was a great little company that was building a structured database for the relevant web, something that Facebook is now trying to do with its Like button. In many ways, this San Francisco-based company gets overlooked for its contributions to the web ecosystem, mostly because it went to eBay and languished. Fast-forward to today, however, and Camp & Co. are still rocking out, much like their peers Kevin Rose (at Digg) and Evan Williams (at Twitter.)
To celebrate the occasion, here’s a video of Camp rocking out at FooCamp.
