Today at Noon EST, Chief Judge Judith Kaye of the state of New York will webcast New York's State of the Judiciary (via realaudio). Following her speech, the Chief Judge will begin accepting questions for an online chatroom discussion on Friday January 12th. Transcripts of last year's state of the judiciary and chatroom discussion are available. This webcast, perhaps the first of its kind, marks the growing accessibility of America's judiciaries in the aftermath of court battles concerning the recent election fiasco, when cameras were first allowed into the Florida State Supreme Court's proceedings and the U.S. Supreme Court first released audio copies of proceedings immediately upon their completion.

As it is, virtually nobody even knows there is a "state of the judiciary" speech, let alone watches it. Thing like this could help get more people interested in how their governments work, which is always a Good Thing. I know I personally would watch a similar webcast for my state if there were one, while I've never watched/read such a speech in the past.

Haha, I know. I attend college at Harvey Mudd (near Los Angeles) and it's even worse there, because the college is on an interruptible power program (to save money). For a while power would go out 3-4 hours a day every day, which got to be really annoying.
