Asshole to Glasshole
Bill Quick

Through a Google Glass, Darkly | The Weekly Standard

“Project Glass” was announced in April 2012, an outgrowth of the semi-secretive Google X division, populated by a group of moon-shot engineers who strive to make science fiction science nonfiction with endeavors like Project Loon (which seeks to bring Internet access to the world via balloons floating in the stratosphere) and driverless cars. “Your car should drive itself,” Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt has said, demonstrating Google’s typical light touch. “It’s amazing to me that we let humans drive cars. .??.??. It’s a bug that cars were invented before computers.”

Since the Glass announcement, I’d tried repeatedly to get a test ride with The Future on my face in order to write about it, but received no cooperation from Google’s media gatekeepers.

It’s because they know you’re a Google-hating asshole, Matt.  As you’re demonstrating in this hit job you wrote here.  What’s funniest about the story, though, is how disappointed you sound that people don’t treat you with the ugliness you seem to think wearing Google Glass both deserves and requires.

Must be a bitch to find out that most of the world doesn’t give a rat’s ass about your hysterical obsessions.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
