Youtube opened up it’s channel to the Copenhagen climate debate this year. Following that many corporations and individuals have made use of the Youtube channels. Like every year tomorrow is the President’s State of the Union Address. What’s unique about this years address is that it will broadcast live on Youtube and ordinary citizens will have any opportunity to ask follow up questions to President Obama.
The State of the Union Speech will broadcast live tomorrow, Wednesday January 27th 2010 at 9 p.m. ET on Youtube’s CitizenTube channel and on The White House’s new iPhone App. Yes, the White House developers have developed a White House App where iPhone users can access and listen to the live speech. Citizens will be able to ask follow up questions to the President during the speech, which he will answer live. Youtube has set up a Moderator series for people to submit their questions to. Questions can be submitted in video or text.
Citizens will also be able to submit questions during the next few days after the speech and also vote for their favorite questions. Next week Youtube will gather the most voted questions and bring them to the President in an interview with the White House (to be broadcast on Youtube next week).
