I have found a link today to the video Did you Know, the official update to the original "Shift Happens" video. This completely new Fall 2009 version includes facts and stats focusing on the changing media landscape, including convergence and technology, and was developed in partnership with The Economist. However, I went back to take a look at the version 3.0 and I still prefer that one and I have included it below.

Throughout history, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples. Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred promises with God. Mormons are well known for their temples, now more than 130 around the world. Temples are a very important in Mormon Theology but their purpose is often misunderstood by many who are not familiar with the LDS or Mormon Church.
I personally love to go to the Temple often, especially now that I live so close to several of them. A Mormon temple is a place of peace, inspiration, and beauty. God meant those temples to be a blessing for all mankind, not only for a few people, but similarly to the receiving of a university degree, there are some requirements to be met before we can access those temples.

Some people attack our church. Some professionals religionists make a living at it. This can cause confusion for people who are looking for information and most people really do not know what Mormmons really believe
A person who wants clear water should go to the spring. A person who wants fruit should go to the tree. Those who want to know what Mormons actually believe can visit the lds.org web site, or mormon.org (official websites of the Mormon Church), or other good websites such as MormonWiki, Mormonbeliefs.org, Christ.org).

The Church is gathering feedback from some of the youth about what kind of web site they should build that would bring them closer to the Savior and help them feel more connected to the Gospel and to the Church.
If you have Facebook, you can join this Facebook site and enter the discussion. They want your feedback.
The Church also created a web site where they link to some things they are thinking about. It's called Labs. You can check out some prototypes on Labs. Use the ID "youthtester" and the password "helaman2000."
They are accepting a limited number of people to have a more personalized experience on Labs. To apply, sign up for an LDS Account. You'll need your member number, which you can get from the ward clerk, and your birth date. Then send your LDS Account name to email@example.com. They are accepting as many as they can until the servers get overloaded.
Once you send the email and they get back to you, you'll be able to log into Labs with your own LDS Account and you'll be able to view your own ward directory online and record your thoughts and feelings about General Conference and recall them later.
In addition, you'll be able to use your LDS Acccount for other web sites the Church is currently working on that will come out this year.
It looks like a great initiative from the Church trying to use the Internet for good. Share it with others.
