http://www.stumbleupon.com/ – “StumbleUpon discovers web sites based on your interests, learns what you like and brings you more. Discover your web with StumbleUpon.” Organized more visually than Digg, but also has categories to break down what type of information you want.

Ellen and the Hula Chair – Need a laugh? Watch and enjoy!
