Anyone have a quick synopsis about differences it may have from the dozen other frameworks in the same space? 
 
Just what the world needs - another JS framework.... From Google no less.
FOAM is a deeply MVC Javascript framework

In Glass, I get this nice notification about what my commute home will be (yes, I wear them while driving and I'm pretty sure they are about 10x safer than using a phone in the car). 

However, the notification labels my "home" as work and my "work" as home? Anyone know how to change that?

Agreed, I keep telling people that Glass is safe because: a) I never have to take my eyes off the road, that is I ALWAYS see the brake lights and b) I talk to it, and it talks to me; I rarely use anything that requires the screen except maybe navigation. Finally, the "limited resolution" of the screen is actually a a "feature" in that it's totally unsuitable to reading web pages on.

Meet Sabita Malla, Glass Explorer and senior research officer for +World Wildlife Fund Nepal. Celebrate #EarthDay with Sabita as she explores how Glass can help in her mission to protect rhinos. 

Sabita uses custom Field Notes Glassware, software that was developed by a Glass Explorer who wanted to help WWF cut in half the work required to manage field conservation efforts. Sabita’s team is one of five nonprofits exploring how Glass might amplify their impact as part of Giving through Glass, a program we launched a few months ago in partnership with +Google.org: goo.gl/AT9obZ

We’re extending the program for another round starting today. Nonprofits can apply now through May 20 at g.co/givingthroughglass. Five nonprofits will win: Glass, a $25,000 grant, a trip to a Google office and a connection to Glass developers.

And if you’re a Glass developer who wants to partner with a nonprofit and code for impact, sign up now at goo.gl/IeRjnk.

I got Glass last weekend, and this week I fell in love. 

For the last six years I have typically spent 2.5 hrs a day commuting, this is not fun. Over the years I've filled my time with NPR, sports radio (soccer) and for the last few years with audio books. But when you realize that you've listened to or read Anathem http://bit.ly/1fb6KDW and Cryptonomicon http://bit.ly/1k3sL8e more than 3 times each... you end up wishing for more from life. 

This week I discovered that Glass is what I've been fantasizing about for years. Being a software guy, I've thought about in car computers and how I could better use my copious commuting time to better advantage for years. And with Glass, I think we finally have the in car computer I've always lusted after. 

The heads up display, simple navigation model, voice recognition, limited display (so it's not too distracting) really come together in a nearly IDEAL solution for in car computing. 

Finally, all those notes about ideas I have or things I need to get done can be captured and sent somewhere without me speaking into a "voice recorder" that I never end up listening to. Instead, voice recognition captures my notes and I've got them in my inbox next time I'm in front of a full "hands and eyes computer" (like my desktop at work with two large screens and speakers) or my ChromeBook at home on the couch, or even on my Tablet when I'm looking for a movie to watch on the weekend and I'm trying to remember that NPR article I heard. 

Certainly there are opportunities for refinement and I've got to figure out the social angle. For example, someone on Twitter suggested I'd just be a "walking surveillance machine" if I was wearing Glass in public. (Although I have an art project in mind that may help with public perception). 

But the important thing is that I've fallen in love again. Fallen in love with exploring the world with new technology and the huge opportunity it has to make the world a better place for myself and others through creative hacking both technical and social. 

Thank you Glass Team, You Rock!

Myself and my family have been patients at Alpha Dental for several years and I just want to share that they are GREAT. The front office is very helpful with scheduling and re-scheduling (I have a crazy demanding work schedule so sometimes I have to reschedule appointments more than once). The hygienists are cheerful and efficient and Dr. Ahmed does a wonderful job. He explains what he's doing, discusses options, and has done a wonderful job with my sometimes challenging crowns. (I've had work done by other people that needed updating and repair). Both myself and the rest of my family are very pleased after several years of experience and look forward to being patients in the future.
