THE GERMAN CHANCELLOR IS PODCASTING
German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed the nation (and the world) on the occasion of the World Cup 2006 to be held in Germany. But she did it in style, like no head of nation has done before. She addressed in a video podcast. She stressed that new technologies like podcasts are not for the young generation alone. She is very happy to address this way and hopes to continue the podcasts to let people know how the German government works. She asked for readers (listeners) feedback via emails.
Just imagine, you don't have to depend on the mainstream media to access to a head of state's address. The world can change if the leaders start it.
