Pinterest-layout style

Is it just me or a LOT of websites and startups started to copy Pinterest layout?

 

stumbleupon.com

trippy.com

fltrr.com

scrollsy.com

 

And there is SE Cloud layout, at least 3 plugins for SE PHP.

    It's a really nice layout for visual objects (images and videos). Especially if they are of different proportions. But it does not work for text or mixed posts (images and text). When SE Cloud community had pinterest-theme enabled it was impossible to follow.

     

    I remember watching a presentation by Pinterest founder. He mentioned they tried dozens of different layout before choosing this one. I can't find a link, if somebody knows it - please share.

    lot of sites are using pinterest layout as it gives option to display summary of their product on single page. Some of our SE clients are also using pinterest theme for their community so I think many sites are following pinterest layout these days.
