It's nice to see that they aren't closing the door permanently on it. 
I went to a bar last night in midtown with my gf's coworkers. After a few drinks one of them completely went off on me for wearing Glass—first time I have ever encountered hostility.
Instead of a juvenile flame war, we get some perspective and some effort at being enlightened about how things work. Funny how the Gawker story has already missed all of that...
Honest question.. Why do you wear google glass in restaurants and bars?  What does it assist you with besides being able to photograph your food and record your surroundings?
+wasabitobiko why do you take your phone with you or Bluetooth headset? It's much more than a camera, text messages, email, etc. Besides not having cellular services it can stand alone for a lot of other tasks.
+Tyson Kemp So someone can get in touch with me... or I can get in touch with someone else when needed, generally.  I guess I'm rare in that I don't take photos of food, and when I'm out, i like to be out enjoying time with the ones I'm with.  I don't check email or social media when I'm not working.. but I guess there are some people who like to be connected at all times.  I don't have a problem with glass as long is record is turned off... and I get that if you're in public, it's not private, but there is a line.  BTW.. "It's much more than a camera, text..."  What else do you use it for when you're out at a restaurant or bar?
+wasabitobiko what if you were unsure of a menu item and rather than embarrass yourself by asking the waiter what it was, you could search it using glass. Or say parts of the menu were in a different language? Word Lens on Glass would translate it for you in real time through the prism. There are more apps being developed all the time, some of those may be helpful in a restaurant setting. 
I can ask the same about any smart-watch, bluetooth headset, or fitness tracker like nike +, fitbit etc.  Our environment is filled with technology, and technology is used to enhance our environment-whatever the reason may be.  They might as well ban smart-watches with cameras while they're at it...where does the line get drawn? Knee-jerk reactions based on ignorance, fear or paranoia are never valid.
+Westly Arnett You could always just ask the server like an adult. If you feel embarrassed asking about the food or speaking to someone whose job it is to know that, that speaks more to your own personal issues than it does to wearing Google Glass.
Translation +1, being embarrassed for asking a waiter (unless he or she is an ass) a question -1.  I do see the device being useful in industrial, retail and possibly other situations.. driving.. Inventory, ordering parts and other products on the fly without having to reference manuals heads up directions.. and even in some restaurants where you look at a QR code on a menu and order and pay for the item... provided it can interact with the restaurant's in house system.. but that seems a couple of years away.. and something you could still use your phone for.. I can also see it useful in some social situations where, if you're like me, you're challenged remembering names.
I get it.. you can't disconnect.  The common theme with all those other devices, save for the camera phone, is a lack of camera.   With a camera on any other device, it's relatively easy to discern whether or not someone is using it to record.   That's the big issue with glass, you're wearing this device in situations where people may not want to be filmed and it's difficult to know whether or not that's the case.
Im going to make a normal looking suit that has a matrix of pinhole cameras in it ... then stitch those videos together and post them online daily ... lets see how that goes over ... 

My sarcasm (but also now interest in actually making a suit like that) is based on the absurdity of peoples uneducated fear of how Glass functions and what most people would do with it (just like cell phones).

This is a tiring conversation to keep having ...
The best (and most liked) comment in the previous thread:

"Why is there such a problem complying with these kinds of requests?

It's no different than a "no shirt, no shoes, no service" policy. Take Glass off, enjoy your meal, pay your bill, and put glass back on again. No big deal." 

Moreover, to say that @feastnyc somehow "discriminated" against you (Cat-e) simply shows a lack of understanding about discrimination, not to mention empathy and respect for those who actually have been discriminated against. Google should ban those 11 users from giving reviews, especially those who reside in Pennsylvania and Ohio, or some other godforsaken place who have reviewed a restaurant which they've never set foot in. 
This is all some useless garbage. 

Net Neutrality battle going on, and +Katy Kasmai is wasting her time with Google Glass bullshit. You call yourself an advocate for rights? Stop wasting time with this and go do something that ACTUALLY MATTERS TO THE WORLD!

I hope to see better out of you in the future.
+Andrij Harasewych You do realize Google Glass actually gets people onto the Internet, right? And if the rights of people who use Google Glass mean nothing, why should anyone care about NN?
+Andrij Harasewych Yes. Rights are rights. Allow one right to be eroded and none of your rights mean anything, do they?

Face plant...
+Warren Street Wow. You really don't understand how important net neutrality is, do you?

Businesses have the right to refuse service to people that don't comply with their policies. If they lose too much business because they turn away people with Glass, then they will change. But this isn't some fundamental right you need to fight for. This is just some self-entitled bullshit.
