ONN – Oakland – In 2013, at the Oakland Global Groundbreaking for what is now called the Insight Terminal Solutions Oakland Bulk & Oversized Terminal Project, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan shared her thoughts on the project and the promise of replacing the well-paying basic industry jobs lost due to the closure of the West Oakland Army Base.
“People have been waiting 15 years to see the Oakland Army Base Redevelopment produce jobs,” Mayor Quan said. In the Zennie62 on YouTube video, she then pointed to the need for the basic, well-paying jobs the Insight Terminal Solutions Oakland Bulk & Oversized Terminal was expected to provide. Quan also mentioned the Port’s long standing desire to have a bulk terminal as part of its service infrastructure.
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.
