There are many, many pick hit sites out there. Two which I've been fascinated with of lately are Jorn Barger's Robot Wisdom Weblog and the Arts and Letters Daily page.
Slashdot functions as a communal-mind sort of pick-hits page, along with inclusion of dialogue and various news items. A must read for the geeknation.
Jim Romenesko runs through the day's newspapers, gossip columns and other resources to produce the Obscure Store's daily report. Almost always worth a read.
