Oakland Uses Lake Merritt For Socializing, Rendering Social Distancing Policy Useless

ONN – Oakland Uses Lake Merritt For Socializing, Rendering Social Distancing Policy Useless

We have a problem in Oakland. For years and decades Oaklanders have used Lake Merritt to socialize.

Today, in this Shelter-In-Place impacted society, there are those who want to get out and socialize. They do so with friends and family. We see this and assume that social distancing is not working.

The problem is that what people use the Lake for runs counter to social distancing. So, we have to figure out another way. Closing the Lake is draconian because people will go out to places that are less spacious and therefore put them even closer to others.

It may be better to make sure people who need masks can get them around town. Sending people to the Lake to get a mask only crowds the Lake.

Also, another way might me to reward those who do go to the Lake or go out around Oakland, but remain in their cars. Perhaps working with the State of California to provide special food purchase vouchers presented to those who use their cars to SIP while out.

Kind of melding the driven through eating experience with SIP.

It’s an idea I will work on and flesh out. The main problem to work out is voucher funding and distribution methodology. It would help eateries gain business and keep us safe at the same time.

Stay tuned.

Note from Media and Oakland Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a ger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland Now site and -created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of , interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the and within seconds and not hours. Now, 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 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. Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
