Queen's Speech hits YouTube

One would like to wish you all a Happy 2.0 Christmas

SANS - Survey on application security programs

She may be an octogenarian but Queen Elizabeth has joined the Web 2.0 jamboree just in time for Christmas.

The 81-year-old monarch, who annually delivers a televised Christmas day message to her subjects, will this year also see her festive chinwag posted to video sharing website YouTube.

Last year's message from the Queen was given the podcast treatment, but tomorrow’s live address to the nation could see millions all over the world tuning in to find out it if the Royal family has had an Annus Horribilis or a hooting tooting 2007.

Buckingham Palace said it is to be shown live on a dedicated “Royal YouTube Channel” at 3pm GMT. The channel actually launched in early October and already has some 8, 500 subscribers.

The Queen made her Christmas Day broadcasting debut 50 years ago in which she hyped the possibilities of television.

Back then she said: "I very much hope that this new medium will make my Christmas message more personal and direct.

"That it is possible for you to see me today is just another example of the speed at which things are changing all around us."

We at Vulture Central have no idea what to expect from her YouTube efforts tomorrow. But, sadly, we doubt our Liz will deliver it while skating down an underground escalator or jumping into a Christmas tree. ®
