ONN – Jewel’s Elegy For Former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh
A very sad story is coming out of the news of Tony Hsieh’s passing. As I read it, I wonder to what degree Tony became disconnected from any groundings that he may have learned from his parents. I will do a step further: I wonder if Tony had gotten so caught up in a mostly white culture of consumption, and without a religious floor, that he lost any feeling for what was truly important in life: himself and family.

I lost my dear friend Tony Hsieh. He founded Zappos, Life is Beautiful music festival and the Downtown Project in Vegas. I have been at a loss for words, and unable to post adequately, because an entire life summed up in a meme is … well… impossible.
I sat down last night to come to grips with my feelings.
This is my elegy, Tony. This is me singing for you. May it find you smiling on the other side of the rainbow. I have never managed to sing while I cry. But here the tears flowed … if anyone has lost a loved one recently, this is for you, too. May we all heal together from the losses of the year
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 YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our 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 – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. 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.
