I am thrilled to announce the release of the ninth Gonzee app, eGuiders. A bold, unique service in the world of online video, eGuiders.com is a collection of fascinating people sharing their personal favorite video picks on the web.
This release features video content from YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, Crackle and other video sharing sites, curated by a team of “eGuiders,” media mavens who handpick and review the most interesting and entertaining online videos. In addition to the core team of eGuiders– which is made up of an array of traditional and new media professionals from filmmakers and producers to editors and designers–the community also features notable guest eGuiders, including John Landis (<em>Animal House</em>), Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara (King of Queens), Damon Lindelof (Lost), Willie Garson (Sex and the City), Margo Alder (NPR’s All Things Considered) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Unit), among many others. The Boxee App allows users to watch a variety of entertainment organized by genre including Animation, Comedy, Drama & Genre, Documentary/Non-Fiction, Music, and Viral as well as the “Pick of the Day.”
Interesting videos handpicked by interesting people.
This app is special in the Gonzee portfolio as it combines two important factors I look for when developing a Boxee app: original, indie content and freshness. The picks by the eGuiders crew consistently capture some of the original genius being hatched online and with the site getting updated with 10-12 videos a day, there is always something new to watch. In the two weeks I’ve been developing the app, it has already become a daily stop whenever I flip on the TV.
Congratulations to the eGuiders team for bringing their curated video experience to the television on Boxee!
