The web has evolved into an indispensable tool for our daily lives. But who are the people driving this growth? All this week the BBC News website is speaking to young, talented web pioneers working in Silicon Valley and beyond.
Garrett Camp is a veteran of the web industry. The net discovery service StumbleUpon he and two friends founded in 2001 has more than two million registered users and his investors include some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley.

But Camp is still only 28-years-old, and could easily pass as a fresh-faced young engineer at Yahoo or Google.

He runs a team of developers and engineers and oversees one of the most popular social networking tools on the web.

The idea behind StumbleUpon is simple.

“Click a button, find something cool was the very basic premise,” he says.
