EUTube on YouTube

David Cameron has a lot of answer for. His WebCameron site created a stir when he started posting up YouTube style videos. Evidently it hasn't worked on his own party, who are still confused about policies (along with the rest of us), but whatever he's done, he helped start a vogue.

Now the European Commission has launched a channel on YouTube to allegedly improve the way it communicates its policies and actions on issues such as the environment, energy and immigration.

Users can watch around 50 video clips on topics. And guess what? Its called EUTube! Great name guys, great name.

Unfortunately we don't get any LonelyGirl15 videos (no, it's not what you think), just the normal bland "EU" fare...

New Digital Editor: Serena Kutchinsky

The New Statesman appoints Serena Kutchinsky as Digital Editor.

Serena Kutchinsky is to join the New Statesman as digital editor in September. She will lead the expansion of the New Statesman across a variety of digital platforms.

Serena has over a decade of experience working in digital media and is currently the digital editor of Newsweek Europe. Since she joined the title, traffic to the website has increased by almost 250 per cent. Previously, Serena was the digital editor of Prospect magazine and also the assistant digital editor of the Sunday Times - part of the team which launched the Sunday Times website and tablet editions.

Jason Cowley, New Statesman editor, said: “Serena joins us at a great time for the New Statesman, and, building on the excellent work of recent years, she has just the skills and experience we need to help lead the next stage of our expansion as a print-digital hybrid.”

Serena Kutchinsky said: “I am delighted to be joining the New Statesman team and to have the opportunity to drive forward its digital strategy. The website is already established as the home of free-thinking journalism online in the UK and I look forward to leading our expansion and growing the global readership of this historic title.

In June, the New Statesman website recorded record traffic figures when more than four million unique users read more than 27 million pages. The circulation of the weekly magazine is growing steadily and now stands at 33,400, the highest it has been since the early 1980s.
