Brett Larkin sat down with this vlogger over lunch at CES 2012, and to talk about the Playkast Social TV App. She said that the tech, which rewards you for watching TV, is at “the intersection of the entertainment industry and entertainment franchises. We want to reward you for watching TV. I’ve watched every episode of Dexter, but right now I don’t get anything for that. So, what we’re reading is a , you know, a rewards program that basically rewards you for watching the TV shows you want to watch anyway.”
Fast forward to today, and Playkast, the firm founded by Steve Hoffman, is still around according to Crunchbase., but has just Steve listed as connected with it.
Meanwhile, Brett Larkin has went on to establish a popular YouTube Channel called Brett Larkin Yoga, and it has 295,000 subscribers.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. The main system is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. There, an uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. This part allows rapid conversion of YouTube videos from any source channel (with permission and from Zennie62 on YouTube) to Oakland News Now blog posts. The overall objective 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. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media 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.
