ONN – Guest Speaker: Michael Tchong – Rotary Club of Oakland Civic Thursday Meeting – March 11, 2021 – video by the YouTube channel in the video’s upper left hand corner.
President Ces Butner called our Civic Thursday Zoom meeting to order at 12:30 p.m. noting this is the 5,331st meeting in our 111-year-old Club and invited us to recite our vision statement.
Rotarian Lewis Griggs gave us the thought of the day. In honor of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, he presented three quotes:
Malcolm X – “You can’t teach what you don’t know. You can’t take people where you won’t go.”
James Baldwin – “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
Angela Davis – “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.”
Rotarian Allison Bliss announced today’s speaker, Michael Tchong. Michael is a well-known American entrepreneur, author, and futurist. His most recent book Uber Trends was extremely popular and is currently working on a 4th book about the COVID lockdowns. Michael is a futurist who says forecasting the future can be extremely difficult. Who could have guessed a worldwide pandemic would happen in 2020? The past year has been crazy and very few could have predicted the COVID pandemic, transition to Zoom or the necessity of wearing masks. Michael rattled off dozens of upcoming trends including a new social medial platform, Clubhouse.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
