May I suggest that HubPages install a random button like StumbleUpon to make it easier for readers who have nothing in mind but just want to pass their evening stumbling across hubs looking for something to read, stopping only at what catches their eyes. Wikipedia also has a random link, albeit a very small one which is hard to find, if you are not familiar with the website. Alternatively, you can have a large button like the random tour button on the left panel at http://malaysiafactbook.com. My point is this will also help hubbers whose hubs are not featured in "All Topics".
I also wonder whether HubPages can be extended to act more like Facebook where not only writers write and interact but also those who love to read but who have no interest in writing. This way, HubPages will garner a bigger audience and hopefully become the next Facebook phenomenon.
We do offer this in the form of our random Hub Hopper: http://hubpages.com/hop/classic/
It only shows Featured Hubs, BTW!
I have been here for 2 weeks and this is the first time I see it! Showing only "Featured Hubs" is fair enough but could that "hop" button be placed on every hub, say on a left panel, so that it is more easily accessible? A left panel with links (as is done in Wikipedia) could make navigation to every part of the website a breeze.... just my humble opinion.

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.
