The state of California this week launched its own YouTube channel. It brings together videos from several different state agencies -- including, as this San Jose Mercury News story points out, some that are actually pretty entertaining. Like the videos promoting the state's free Ready Return tax preparation service.
Of course, California isn't the first government to start a YouTube channel. Officials like Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt, localities like the city of Norfolk, VA; and other government entities, like the South Carolina State Library and the Virginia Dept. of Emergency Management, have all staked their claim with a dedicated YouTube channel.
But the California site still seems like a big-ish deal. I mean, I can't seem to find an example of any other state -- or city government -- with such a broad, organized channel that incorporates different agencies' videos the way California's does.
If there's one out there, let me know.
