60 Minutes Goes Social with YouTube Media Channel Partnership

“Ask 60 Minutes”

Looking to “start a conversation,” broadcast media program “60 Minutes” makes its move to embrace social media and user-generated content via a new YouTube Channel and partnership called “Ask ’60 Minutes'”. The new channel opens up the news giant to user feedback where you can engage directly with “60 minutes” correspondents. If lucky enough, they will post your video on their show.

Surely may not be as ground breaking as Rocketboom, but will user-generated content change the way broadcast news generates and produces newsworthy content? And more importantly, in our desire to consume it?

I guess we’ll have to tune in to watch the story unfold.

Get Your 60 Seconds of Fame

Go to the “60 Minutes” YouTube channel to upload a 60-second video with your thoughts, as well as vote on others responses.

Happy Earth Day.

It’s not another bank holiday for me, my colleagues and my family to take a day off and go to the beach. It is a day of reflection- on what I can do to add value to the health of our planet.

To share in the conversation on climate change and my individual efforts, I share this video for some inspiration on what others are doing.

Today, I telecommute and I will walk. One small change for me.
Next week, I scheduled my calendar to repeat it.
