It's here, http://CityRide.co 
Checkout our Citi Bike app for Glass. #NYC  
 
+CityRide #NYC for +Google Glass is here. 
Sideload the APK from http://CityRide.co

A month ago, Glass NYC joined the official NYC +NYCEDC #BigApps challenge to 'Make NYC a Better Place to Live'.

We wanted to take Glass mainstream in the NYC tech scene, so we all got together and created http://CityRide.co, a Glass app for effortlessly finding an available and nearby #CitiBike and docking station, hands-free.

If you've been to NYC, then you know that transportation is one of our biggest challenges. When Citi Bike came to town last year, we all breathed a sigh of relief. But now we want to take it to the next level and make finding a dock easy as pie, and just plain cool.

Check out our official NYC project page: http://cityrideforglass.splashthat.com

Our team: +John Lee +R Antonio Herrera +prat t +Andrew Pritykin +Zain Diaz +Pat Needham +Zill Christian +Zack Freedman and +Katy Kasmai.

+Larry Page regarding G+: I think there’s a lot of things going on with Google Plus. I’m a very excited user of it. You saw some demos showing how it works with Chromecast — that’s one of the things I’ve been excited about. The service has been growing tremendously. People are always like, “Oh, what’s going on?” But for us, we’re superexcited about it because it’s a big service, growing continuously, since we launched it, at a high rate, and we’re making it better and better every day.

Obsessed. Please let this be my house. Love the clean white walls with the exposed raw wood.

Not bad and I do love the pocket doors. However that space between the wood floors and the carpet might be a little annoying. At least for a little while. The first night waking up and going to the bathroom I would stub a toe and lose it.

Thanks +Katy Kasmai for the feedback on your opinion. I decided to go ahead and purchase the LG G Watch until they drop the Moto 360. 

Thats truly what I'm waiting for!

We took great care in placing the FAB just right.
 
+Google Glass for the Opera.
A few months back I met with +Eric Einhorn of +On Site Opera. He was working with +Geoff Webb of +Figaro Systems Inc to enhance the Opera experience with the help of Glass.

Last month they met success.
They invited the Glass NYC community to a production of Rameau’s “Pygmalion" and were able to provide translations of the opera #throughglass. It was glorious. Viewers could enjoy the opera without having to look down on screens and yet still get translations they needed. Less distractions, more opera.

The use cases for Glass are endless, and we are excited to see more of them play out each day. Glass NYC will continue to work with +On Site Opera to take this experience to the next level.


Many thanks to +Zack Freedman for his technical support.

What a pleasure it is to collaborate with interesting talented people with vision, thank you all.

Plunging headfirst into unknown territory is what Exploring is all about and there remains plenty more to discover.

- I like Good Design, whatever it may be (for interiors I like minimal, rustic and fine).

Paradoxical Traits of Creative People

"I frequently find myself thinking about whether I am an artist or an entrepreneur."  

Creative people "show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated." 

1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they're also often quiet and at rest. 

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time. 

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility. 

4.creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality. 

5. Creative people tend to be both extroverted and introverted. We're usually one or the other, either preferring to be in the thick of crowds or sitting on the sidelines and observing the passing show. Creative individuals, on the other hand, seem to exhibit both traits simultaneously. 

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time. 

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping. 

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative. 

9.most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well. 

10. Creative people's openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.
