Glass: Three Month Review

It seemed like I should give people a bit of an update about Google Glass, and what the experience of being a Glass Explorer has been like for me. First, I’ve met a number of really great people through Glass.  I spent the first month basically wandering alone and not seeing anyone else wearing Glass […]

Google Glass: Glass at the SFWA Readings

So I set a challenge for myself to use Glass while hosting the SFWA readings and to be as natural as I could, and to get some pictures and video.  This was about a two hour event, and the battery lasted and still had juice left at the end.  I wore them the whole time, […]

Google Glass: Day one

So I haven’t answered many questions from my last blog post yet, but the household teenager is done with her finals and I’m free to play with Glass.  Here’s how its gone so far…. The boxing and presentation of Glass is cool.  Glass is light and easy to wear. Set up is pretty easy.  It […]
