TechCrunch Article:
“Brigade Media Raises $9.3M From Sean Parker To Shake Up American Democracy”

http://goo.gl/JtPv23

"The company thinks that American democracy is adrift. The main bent at play is a view that this country’s democracy is not “scaling” the way that it might — essentially that as our society has changed, our governing structures have failed to keep pace. This has led to a disconnect between average citizens and their elected leaders. It will likely apply digital tools to the larger electoral process to shake up how we approach picking leaders, and keep the large citizenry informed. At least that’s what I can glean from the information I have in my possession. The product will be consumer-facing."
Stealthy, unlaunched startup Brigade Media has raised $9.3 million from Sean Parker of Facebook fame, along with unknown sums from Ron Conway and Marc..

I'm very excited about uses like this of Glass. I think this is where it's going to shine the most -- in lots of critical tasks where you have to have your hands free, and you just need a steady stream of side data. That can be anything from doctors in an ER, to mechanics repairing a car, to gate agents at airports. The uses can blossom out from there.

(Also, for those not familiar with it, the picture here happens to show one important feature of Glass: you can tell when people are actually using it. You can see their screen right there. Likewise, if they're taking a picture, there's a little picture/recording LED. This is not surveilling you in secret!)
Google Glass can be used to check emails or search for information on the move. It can also apparently be used to save lives. The Boston Globe reports that Dr. Steven Horng, working at Boston's...

Story
Introduction

I am Developer Advocate of Project OPEN for Developer Relations Team at Google.

I started my career working at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT)- the largest telecom in Japan for 7 years and moved to Interscope - a marketing research company, then joined Digital Garage which Joichi Ito cofounded where I worked on localizing blog search engine Technorati to Technorati Japan, helped Creative Commons Japan and iCommons, invested as VC and helped startups and organized conferences such as New Context Conference and iCommons Summit. I joined Google after freelancing as a traveler, researcher, consultant and a journalist.

I am currently a fellow of Creative Commons Japan, and fellow at International University of Japan, Center for Global Communications (Glocom). I initiated various projects including Hack For Japan (an initiative to use technology for Japan to recover from 311 disaster) Tohoku Tech Dojo (an initiative to help youngsters in Tohoku learn how to code, to cultivate new industry in the area to recover from 311 disaster), and Fukko Hangout (an initiative to help people in Tohoku to convey their message directly using the Internet)
