Europe, with love

Published on


So what about that video of the European Commission? Don't know what I'm talking about? Just look here...

No later than Thursday, Joe Hennon, recently appointed spokesperson for the commissioner on communication, told us that the European commission will focus more on Internet. Well... they already did it. The controversy around the video I linked to is a living proof of that. Why?

Because all those videos already were on the European commission website, ready to be downloaded by anyone who wanted... but who really took the time to go to that website and look to videos about Europe?

"What we have on EUTube is material we already had. But why would people go to the Audio-visual section of our website instead of going to YouTube?", Mr. Hennon said.

And I have to admit that in the beginning I was a little skeptic about that (how would the boring videos produced by the European Commission could possibly rise the interest of young people on YouTube- or EUTube)? Well... I obviously, i hadn't seen them :)
