    This rocks. Thanks.
    To STE – there’s a bunch of plugins that have this player embedded. WordPress has at least 5 that I’ve found.

    Justin, that’s funny, those are the only two toolbars I have (besides Google). I haven’t really gotten into community building though, so I’m excited to listen to the podcast. Currently, I use SU as more of a storage tool for cool articles/sites I run across. However, I witnessed the marketing potential of it last night when I went to our local Refresh developers meeting. A design company did a talk on Google Analytics and were mentioning that a “digg-like” site called StumbleUpon had been sending them a lot of traffic for the last week. The irony is I stumbled their site and blog two weeks ago and the traffic spike was a direct result of that. How cool! I deal with such a big retailer I forget about the difference things like this make to “little guys.”

    Rhea, that’s tight that you attend Refresh, I organize the one here in San Diego!

    Sweet. We hooked up with a usability expert that was giving an analytics presentation at Refresh and attended the first meeting last night. It was awesome meeting people in the area that are interested in the same things… SEM isn’t exactly a booming industry in Jacksonville, FL. :)

    I like the idea of using a female profile on StumbleUpon :)

    I’m stalking the crap out of you guys… you stumbled barbie? Good episode guys. I would suggest better phones/mics though. It can be difficult to hear sometimes. It sucks that your ads are the best quality audio in the clip.
