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 18 2013: Wow, I am nothing short of astounded at your understanding and perception. You are absolutely right. Of course the real world is determined by you, it is your perception that makes it real or not. Today we are starting life which appears to be (a chemical reaction) in a test tube. We are growing skin and organs. We are twinking DNA. We have discovered the "God Particle". We build robots that are smarter, faster, stronger than a human and they conceive and build better robots. Unfortunately we are so busy making copies of the human that we are neglecting the real human.

          Jul 19 2013: I can't tell you how many times that has crossed my mind but the reason I have not is it would take to much time and effort to educate a new society. It took Moses forty years and look what he come up with. However I am going to do what I can. I am in the process of creating an imaginary town, a utopian town where every one shares every thing. I named it peopletown.org but I don't think it will be ready for anyone to move in for at least a couple years.
