Are you ready for the Google Glass generation?

Google Glass brings online to a whole new level. Imagine billions of people walking around recording and uploading video "live". No more secrets! People at work, people at play, people exploring and all that data available live to everyone. Another level of video search called "live search". If you want to find out what someone is doing simply type in their name and you can see what they see and do.

Summation: What did we learn about Google glasses?
A) A lot of you like any technology that will bring more information within our reach, information is power.
B) Lots of you are concerned about privacy issues. You like your freedom.
C) Most of you are concerned about the government getting and misusing our information.
I congratulate all of you for your well made points and I have learned what a awesome group of intelligent analysts we have here at TED. TY one and all.

Think of it this way: You are watching each other, the government is watching you, you are watching the government, the government is also watching you watch the government, the government is watching the government, the government is also watching other governments that are watching our government and God is watching all of this an laughing her ass off as she thinks "at least they are easy to entertain".

      Jul 15 2013: Andrew I agree they should not be used while driving because of the distraction, I don't understand how they hurt the eyes, you can share with others after the fact, the scanning as I understand it is the whole face to interface with face recognition identification and I know of no parameters that will stop the glasses from working. My apologies for my prior remark, there are a lot of fake people on TED as you well know.
      The idea, dumb or not is out there and someone will follow up on it one way or another.

        Jul 15 2013: Me, I'd have to add meds to make that work! Check out my comments above. What do you think about the cops having Google Glass? Would that have changed things for Travon Martin if he had been wearing Google Glass?

        What if every young black man in America wore a hoodie & his Google Glass every single time they went outside on the street? Might that cut back on those harassing/profiling traffic stops I have heard young black men describe as: "Driving while black!"

        Might there be something to that?
