Lumi MARTIN STIKSEL and FELIX MILLER image 01Two co-founders of Last.fm, Martin Stiksel and Felix Miller, were in San Francisco this week to launch their new startup called Lumi.

Lumi is approaching web discovery in a new way: People can use their browsing history to effortlessly find news, information, entertainment and products that interest them. They receive a real-time feed with individual suggestions of relevant and popular web pages that automatically adapt to what they browse.

Lumi requires little effort: simply spend a few moments signing up and installing the Chrome, Firefox or Safari extension. Straightaway, Lumi delivers individual suggestions based on interests derived from your browsing history. There is no need to select categories, tick boxes, or subscribe to feeds. To keep Lumi working, just keep on browsing.

Check out some of the coverage on the launch below.

It’s been a while since Felix Miller and Martin Stiksel, co-founders of the music site, Last.fm, have been in the press, but today, they announced that they have been working hard on a new company called Lumi, a personal Web experience that makes it easy to discover new and relevant content.

Back when Martin and Felix started Last.fm, they tried to show that with the right kind of technology, it would be possible – and easy – for people to discover new music they like.  The pair always thought that by taking a similar approach for the Web as a whole it should be easy for people to discover all sorts of content. That’s what they’re doing with Lumi.

Instead of starting from scratch each time you fire up your browser, Lumi allows you to anonymously and securely record the pages you visit. Lumi then uses this data to learn about your interests, to discover popular webpages and to provide suggestions of pages that will interest you.

The site is currently accepting early-bird testers – just go to https://lumi.do to check it out.
