ONN – OakDOT’s Russo In “Oakland’s 75 Miles of Slow Streets: Mobility Experiments During Lockdown” Video
Ryan Russo, the Executive Director Of The Oakland Department Of Transportation, is featured in this video called” Oakland’s 75 Miles of Slow Streets: Mobility Experiments During Lockdown”, and by Urban Cycling Institute on YouTube, who reports:
In the era of social distancing, many cities around the world have eyes on Oakland’s “Slow Street” initiative – the creation of 75 miles of “open streets”. While Oakland is one of many cities implementing new measures to expand access to public space or limit speeds/presence of car traffic, the Slow Streets initiative seems to be one of the boldest to date. So what was their secret sauce?
With 60-minutes on the clock, we will talk with the Director of Dept of Transport, Ryan Russo, who coordinated the implementation. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of the roll-out, the roses and thorns, and what’s in store for the future.
Moderator: Roxanne de Beaux, Executive Director of Camcycle UK
Zoom host: Meredith Glaser, Urban Cycling Institute
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.
