ONN – Downtown Oakland Hampton Inn Grand Opening Features Flying Dancers
The new Downtown Oakland Hampton Inn held its grand opening this morning. Oakland District Six Councilmember Loren Taylor was in attendance and captured this Facebook Video of flying dancers act on high wires on the walls of the hotel.
The Downtown Oakland Hampton Inn (featured here at Oakland news Now) is the first new hotel in Oakland in 18 years. It’s at 378 11th Street (not 13th Street as the vlog says), and is just a block from BART Oakland City Center 12th Street Station. That means one can take BART from SFO Airport and get off at The Oakland BART Station, and walk one block to The Hampton Inn.
Come to think of it, the hotel should have a reserved greeter service for anyone who takes BART from SFO Airport.
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. This is a major part of zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The 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. 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.
