I don't like owning too much stuff so I've been busy this past week purging what I can from my <500 sqft 2 bdr, but still got my trusty #Moto360 and finally replaced my shattered #nexus5 with a #Nexus6!
Getting ready for big things ahead... #NYC #onward #SFbound
It’s hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Program as a kind of “open beta” to hear what people had to say.
Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed: from the large hadron collider at CERN, to the hospital operating table; the grass of your backyard to the courts of Wimbledon; in fire stations, recording studios, kitchens, mountain tops and more.
Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.
Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. Glass at Work has been growing and we’re seeing incredible developments with Glass in the workplace. As we look to the road ahead, we realize that we’ve outgrown the lab and so we’re officially “graduating” from Google[x] to be our own team here at Google. We’re thrilled to be moving even more from concept to reality.
As part of this transition, we’re closing the Explorer Program so we can focus on what’s coming next. January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready. (For now, no peeking.)
Thanks to all of you for believing in us and making all of this possible. Hang tight—it’s going to be an exciting ride.
Also, I'm still loving the #moto360, but I do wish it wasn't as thick. Being thick it gets caught on my coat sleeve often. And of course I still got dat shattered #Nexus5. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting a #Nexus6 at some point....soon.
2015 here we come! I think it's going to be a better year, more interesting challenges and discoveries. More opportunities to push our limits and boundaries, and become ever more creative and innovative. This year I want to learn more than the past 10 years combined, that's my resolution.
Happy New Year my friends!
