Media Guy's Pop Pick: and Chime.TV

Our Columnist's Current Media Obsessions

By Published on .

These two "human-curated" sites, now in beta, will make you feel way smarter about the generally stupid pastime of scrounging around for amusing viral videos. The first, TheDailyTube, is the creation of men's-mag (Details, Men's Journal) refugee Michael Caruso.
The site has a free-e-mail angle -- "the best new videos on the internet delivered fresh to your inbox" -- but what I like most about it is the constantly updated crash course on the state of the viral-video arts offered via home-page buttons such as "Best Videos of the Week" and "Best Videos of All Time."

Like The Daily Tube, Chime.TV, founded by Gainesville, Fla., internet wunderkinder Taylor McKnight and Chirag Mehta, offers a highly edited video-viewing experience but puts more emphasis on user involvement; sign up for a free account and you can create your own shareable playlist of your video favorites from across the internet.
