LonelyGirls, Scary Pickles & You … YouTube Videos of the Year

December 29th, 2006 by Larry Smith

BoingBoing’s Mark Frauenfelder gives his take on the top 5 YouTube video’s of the year on ABC News.

It’s great to see the spikey-haired Net culture guru Frauenfelder all cleaned up and on network news, and his picks are delightful (that pickle vid from Maury Povich is awesome, see below), if unsurprising. When our own YouTube guru Alex Koppelman returns from his European vacation, we’ll get his take too—and promises to take you beyond the ABCs of YouTube.

There were, apparently, other forms of media besides online videos in the past year. To help you navigate the rest of the best of personal media, we turn to the one and only DJ Spooky who unfurls his Best of 2006: A Guide for the Perplexed exclusively for SMITH.

And click below for pickles.
