Picked this up from Kable today. Good to see Gov is keeping up with the social computing trends:

The Cabinet Office has placed two promotional videos on the YouTube file sharing website

One of the videos promotes the Transformational Government strategy, while the other deals with the theme of leadership.

A Cabinet Office spokesperson told GC News on 22 August 2006 that it was an “unofficial” trial designed to test the potential of the site.

“It’s not a bad idea to communicate with people through a website that is proving very popular,” the spokesperson said.

“It’s not future policy to use this kind ofcommunication but we are interested. Given that we are a major sourceof information and services for the public we need to find new ways ofcommunicating.”

The videos have been on the site for threemonths, in which the one on Transformational Government has attracted790 viewers and that on leadership has pulled in 430. There was onlyone comment on each, describing them as government propaganda.

The spokesperson added that the Cabinet Office is ready to consider the possibilities for communicating through other channels.

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
