ONN – Zennie Abraham Intros Video Comment System For Zennie62Media’s Oakland News Now, For CES 2021 – vlog by Zennie62 YouTube

Something exciting for CES 2021, what I still call CES Las Vegas as well as CES Digital.

For years I have been fascinated with the path-breaking possibilties offered by video and vlog commentary. The problem has been one of video “weight” and also use. Early on, Loic Leimur’s Seimic social network offered promise, with it’s way of stringing together videos into one thread, much like the Twitter set up we see today. But he could not get enough traction with his platform.

On top of that, I’ve been on, and even board member of, a slew of micro-vlogging platform companies, from Vidoco in Israel, to Tout in San Francisco, to 12Second.tv, to 6Seconds, and more.   I have a long history with the micro-vlogging industry.

Fast forward to today. After a number of searches for the right combination, and to make a long story short for this purpose (and so I can get to bed and sleep as it is 3:24 AM), I stumbled on a platform called Yappa.

Yappa says it is “Enabling you and your audience to connect and engage with your brand and your content in ways that text-based comments cannot deliver. A conversational multimedia tool innovating the way we interact online.” That’s exactly what I am and have been trying to do and interested in since 2005, and when I discovered vlogging for myself and then got involved heavily after attending Vloggercon in San Francisco in 2006, and joining IReport (before CNN bought it), and Blip.tv (in 2005) and YouTube, starting the Zennie62 Channel in April of that same year, and just months before I attended Vloggercon.

Right now, you can make a video comment of about 10 seconds and “join the conversation”, in this case, on CES, but it could be on Oakland, or Star Trek, or SpaceX, or MARVEL’s Loki, or The Biden Administration’s cabinet picks, or,…You get the idea.

Give it a try, please. And I am going to work to talk more about Yappa and the Yappa Team, whom I do not yet know.  UPDATE: I just discovered that Yappa consists of a two-person team led by Jennifer Dyer as CEO and Kiaran Sim as Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer.   I’m also proud to report that both Jennifer Dyer and Kiaran Sim are African American!  It is a welcome sign that we’re at a point where, as I have said, there are really a number of blacks in tech out there, doing interesting things, we just have to find each other.

In my case, I found out about Yappa while reading a post about MARVEL STUDIOS’s Loki on IGN.  I happened to see what turned out to be the Yappa app, and almost fainted.  Instead, I went to get the app, then coded a new widget space for Oakland News Now, so I could fit it, along with what I originally intended to do for CES.

I had shut my comment system down because I was so dismayed with the nature of online exchange, today.  As I said before, Yappa is a godsend. It saves me from the video-hosting job I did not want to do, or have on my WordPress platform.

Anyway, here’s more about Yappa and how to make a “Yap” – then, give it a try, below in the field.

Stay tuned.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: 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.
