ONN – Marc Canter Used ZOOM For A Virtual Passover Seder
My friend and now business partner Marc Canter was kind enough to invite me to his Passover Seder. Not my first, but my first Virtual Passover Cedar on the video conferencing app ZOOM.
But a traditional Seder is, as defined by Chabad:
The Seder is a feast that includes reading, drinking wine, telling stories, eating special foods, singing, and other Passover traditions.
As per Biblical command, it is held after nightfall on the first night of Passover (and the second night if you live outside of Israel), the anniversary of our nation’s miraculous exodus from Egyptian slavery more than 3,000 years ago. This year’s Seder(s) will be on April 8 (and 9), 2020.
As be fits Marc, his version was tech-oriented and brought together a group of 11 separated by distance as great as from Atlanta to Mumbai. What was the most notable was that it happened in the middle of this plague.
That event was the first time the biblical meaning of the Coronavirus plague hit me.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: 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 vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and Zennie62-created and 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 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.
