A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.
Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
But to say that the federal government has no place making something like a "patient bill of rights" puts into question the federal government's ability to have a bill of rights at all, doesn't it? Protecting individual rights, at least to provide some baseline standard, has been found to be within the role of the federal government. After all, let's not forget that any constitution is, at the most basic level, a contract between a state and its citizens. We have a system of limited government, but the primary role of that limited government is ensuring the safety and security of its citizens, and the entire purpose of keeping government limited is to keep it from trampling on the rights of its citizens. Therefore is it really an expansion of federal government powers when it resolves to protect more rights of its citizens? This process has only led to MORE freedom in this country since our inception... the abolition of slavery, women's suffrage, civil rights legislation, etc. Each of those cases was fought vigorously using the "state's rights" argument, attempting to castrate the federal government's ability to restrict states from stripping rights from citizens (or maintaining an untenable status quo).
Now, I'm not saying states don't have rights. What I'm saying is that we have a long history of the federal government intervening in areas where the states have failed their citizens. This alone may not be enough of an impetus for the federal government to intervene in the case of health care... but the fact that health care costs to the government and to individuals have been skyrocketing, and the general health status of our citizenry is declining at a rate alarming enough that some in the pentagon are calling it an issue of national security, and that human dignity is taking a backseat to a mostly unfettered free market... well, our current system is just unsustainable. We are pretty much the last developed nation at our standard of living to (reluctantly) recognize this.

It looks pretty suspicious when powerful people are calling for the assassination of a journalist.
And regarding the bit about social media manipulation... call me a cynic, but that's par for the course these days. Every large corporation now has someone, or a team, in charge of social media manipulation and propaganda. (They probably prefer to call it PR.) The very act of a non-human engaging in social media IS social media manipulation.... and when I mean non-human, I don't mean robots or aliens, I mean people engaging social media for purposes beyond the individual, be it for government, corporate or even nonprofit charity purposes. I can't blame them for doing what they do... I blame the proprietors of the social media engine (ie, Facebook, Twitter, G+) for standing idly by, or worse, actively courting them.
