Youtube hosting New Zealand election debate

The New Zealand government has become the latest to use Youtube to support an election debate, with Prime Minister Helen Clark and John Key to face questions posed by New Zealand-based YouTube users during a debate broadcast live on TV ONE on 14 October.

New Zealand YouTube users have been asked to submit video questions up to 30 seconds long, and a number will be selected to feature during the debate.

I'm still waiting to see YouTube used in a similar way as Howard's weekly radio spot by Ministers to respond to top-of-mind community issues, perhaps as an extension to Community Cabinets to allow a larger number of participants.
