While people have always wondered what the value of URL link shortening services like bit.ly could possibly be (beyond shorter links), the guys over at bit.ly have taken wraps off just a tiny glimmer of the power of mass-quantities of crowdsourced data.

By tracking which links to video sites are most popular over time, bitly.tv lets you quickly see the most popular videos on the web – right now, or at any point over the last week. It’s a great way to discover new content, and just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what these guys will be able to do with all the data they collect on the popularity of links that are clicked on.

At this point bitly.tv is just an experiment under the labs.bit.ly site, but we’re hoping it sticks around for a long time. Check out bitly.tv, and I’m sure you’ll be hooked. I sure am.
