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 29 2013: There is a bigger picture being painted and we're failing to see it. John Locke believed that people would be more than willing to sacrifice freedom for protection, and thought that to be human nature if I'm not mistaken. He wasn't wrong, nor were the others who proved otherwise.

    Google Glass although a great technological advancement, is also going to lead us to a very dark future. When the government okays UAVs flying over the nation, and has access to our google glass feeds, along with our facebook, twitter, instagram and other social networks, we are left with nothing. Our minds will no longer belong to us.

      Jul 29 2013: You do realize that all that surveillance watches them as well and it only takes one disgruntled employee out of the hundreds of thousands with access to it to dump it all. Does the name Snowden or Manning or Assange ring a bell? These are just the ones we know about that are ruffling fed feathers. What about the thousands of brilliant spies from other countries who are silently siphoning off any data they want at any time? Sooner or later they will realize that the best security is to open source all of it and instead of stifling technology, actually use it to advance the entire world instead of only a few. It's greed that got us all in this position in the first place. We are not going to dig our way out with more greed!
      • Aug 3 2013: Yes, but we have more people willing to bend over and take it then those who would put their life on the line. Then there are those who's minds are so clouded by illusions from the government that they will line up against the truth, claiming it was an attack on "America".

          Aug 3 2013: Bottom line, "If you want to keep a secret, don't tell anyone"! Once you put it in digital form, I don't care where you hide it, it is no longer a secret!
