Shakedown 2.0?

This is my second test blog where you'll find news and opinions on the latest happenings surrounding the internet, technology, entertainment, et. al.
Why the name? "Shakedown" is a period of testing or trial journey undergone by a ship, plane or other craft before declared operational. 2.0 simply because it's my second trial blog [see the first blog here]

God save the Queen.. and Her YouTube channel as well.

Britain's 81-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, considered an icon of traditionalism, launched her own special "Royal Channel" on YouTube Sunday.

The queen will use the popular video-sharing Web site to send out her 50th annual televised Christmas message, which she first delivered live to the nation and its colonies on Dec. 25, 1957.

"The queen always keeps abreast with new ways of communicating with people," Buckingham Palace said in a statement. "The Christmas message was podcast last year."

Indeed the internet's technology makes messages like these more accessible to younger people and those in other countries. YouTube has been used to deliver important statements and events, making the youth aware of what's happening around.. like the Presidential Debate in the US, and the Wowowee cheating rehearsal here in the Philippines. So don't be surprised if next time you see the Pope delivering his Christmas, New Year or Easter message through his "Paypal.. ehrr.. Papal Channel" as well :)
