Pope 2.0
The Vatican this Friday will announce details of a partnership with Google to launch the Holy See's own YouTube channel.
According to The Telegraph, the channel will offer "video footage and audio of addresses by Pope Benedict XVI," the current occupant of the Papal Apartments in the Vatican's Apostolic Palace.
This won't be the Vatican's first foray onto the wild and wooley web. In Protected content Holy See launched its own web site, which is one of the few online places where you can find a section entirely in Latin.
The Vatican's site even includes a set of six live web cams, should you feel the need to grab a quick glimpse of the Tomb of Pope John Paul II.
