Using Glass to spy on cameras. Having started reading The Transparent Society, this is very interesting.
 

A Google Glass App overlays the streetscene with warnings (in red) of where cameras may be pointing.  Close appraisal suggests they may over-promise.  But the implications are interesting.

The Google Glass app Watch Your Privacy outs those cameras, but outs you too.

Shame the Catholic Church isn't subject to RoI
 
Roman Catholic church performs world wide poll into issues such as homosexuality and contraception then expressly refuses to make the results public.

I think we can guess what the results were :)
