Yep, we're happy to help! #askanexplorer  
 
Become a Glass Explorer on Tues April 15

Whoops. So... we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. 

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one

We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.

*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.

If you can't join the hangout, just ask a question, I'm sure we can help answer them!

For all of the overhyped articles and posts on #googleglass   attacks, there have been two (2). According to a piece on BGR, San Francisco, smartphone thefts on record rose 23% to 2,400 in 2013. “[The San Francisco Police Department]. Put things in the right perspective folks.

With all of the complaints about #googleglass   lately, especially the whole arguments about people using it to record "secretly," I recently wrote about the topic. What I find most frustrating is that most of the concern comes from people who don't have Glass and, in many cases, have never even tried it. It's a big, blue thing on my face, I can't secretly be doing anything!

And, Glass is a great way to record things like school concerts. If people want to complain about something, complain about having to watch your kid dance through a sea of cellphones! 

There may be people who do bad things with Glass, although I haven't actually heard of any yet, buy by and large, the Glass wearers I know are very respectful and wouldn't use Glass in any way that they wouldn't use their cell phone. In fact, I've had lots of folks in bard buy me drinks because I let them try them and explore for themselves.

I get that everyone should have an opinion, but it should be based on some experience with the thing you're talking about, shouldn't it?

Heading to SF tomorrow and hoping that the weather there will finally be warm! I'm really, really tired of it being cold!

In my presentations, I tell people that it's not always about price, but it's always about value. Love how this picture brings that idea to life!
 
love this!

I'm a catalyst for innovation in marketing and brand experiences!
Introduction

For 20+ years, I have explored emerging technologies that can help brands tell better stories. I have also helped brands align their online and offline experiences into Oneline™ experiences, to create a better business, drive revenue and differentiate in a world that's too similar. I help brands understand how to better connect with their audience and that today what you do is far more important then what you say.

You may have known me as the Founder and Chief Experience Officer of the Brand Experience Lab, which was called "A playroom for marketers and agencies" by Ad Age when it first opened. Or, you may know me from my days writing Experience Manifesto, a blog I wrote for over 5 years. Or maybe you know me as LBBINC (my previous company was Location Based Branding) on Twitter. And this road I'm on began way back in the early 90's, when I was first introduced to virtual reality by Dave Peters of Absolute Amusements.

In those many years, I've covered a lot of ground, but one thing has remained consistent: I've looked for innovative ways to create compelling, authentic and relevant brand experiences.
