What Steph said.  I haven't had my Glass as long, but I really do love having it, and I would do it again, beta product, high cost, and all. Today's the day if you want to choose Glass for yourself and not need a Googler to say yes. 
 
I've shared this with many people in the last 276 days since getting my Google Glass: 

YES they are AWESOME 

why?

Well I love taking pictures and this makes taking pictures so easy, convenient and natural. 

I don't make a lot of videos but they are very easy to make with Glass. 

I love sharing them with people who haven't seen them yet. 

I love hands free notifications. 

I love hands free text messaging while driving with audible playback. 

Most of all, I love the Explorer community! I've engaged with so many awesome, amazing, friendly, caring, exciting, intelligent, honest, loving, genuine people. I feel as if I traveled across the United States I'd have a close friend to visit in nearly every state. I love the Explorers and hope the new Explorers carry on in this same manner. 

Would I do it all over again?  YES YES YES being an Explorer is everything I never imagined it would be and more!

I'm really looking forward to the World Future Society in Orlando this summer.  When I was at the conference last year, they asked me to help with a science fiction symposium.  Kind of a "for the love" job, but the reason I wear my futurist hat at all is about making great conversations happen - I believe that in this time of intense change we really need to be thoughtful so that we create the future instead of being run over by it.
It's been fun to help put it together, and now people can sign up.  Think of this as a great way for science fiction writers to immerse themselves in current thinking about the future for a few days....with +Ramez Naam  +Trevor Haldenby  +Madeline Ashby , Gray Scott, Zoltan Istvan, Brad Aiken, Glen Hiemstra, and more.

The awful Oso Landslide up here got me thinking about soils, and soils and climate change, and that led to biological beings.... http://www.brenda-cooper.com/2014/04/11/backing-eden-chapter-19-earth/

The technology giant will give more assistance to Glass users at businesses, where the wearable device has already found some acceptance.

I chose to focus on air pollution.  I'm working my way through the basic four elements, and these may actually end up as earlier chapters in the book. For the blog series, its Chapter 18….

Interesting article going down the path of my previous post (kind of) regarding Android Wear and (in this case or) #glass.  Note that I want both, and for them to work together.

I would use both because I don't wake up with Glass on due to it being uncomfortable to sleep with.
