Oh, Eek! It’s a Glass!

Google Glass creator sees something smaller, faster and less awkward – Computerworld

Since the unit’s unveiling in 2012, it has attracted the attention of early adopters who see the promise in Google’s pitch. But it has also prompted questions and some criticism, including privacy concerns related to its camera and doubts about how useful it actually is.

In San Francisco, some people have been attacked for wearing the device out in public.

That’s because San Francisco is infested with thousands of goatse-bearded hipster douchebags.  But even with that, only a tiny minority have complained, let alone actually assaulted Glass wearers.  But their goatse-bearded hipster douchebag compatriots in the tech media play up that handful of incidents as if it were an overwhelming trend.

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.

  1. …it has also prompted questions and some criticism, including privacy concerns related to its camera…

    There are still people who, somehow, imagine that they still have any realistic expectations of privacy when they are anywhere in “public spaces”* these days?

    How – very touchingly naive…

    (*”public spaces” meaning, of course, “anywhere other than inside your own home with all doors closed and windows covered – and sometimes even in there, as well”)
