Nice video and thank you for the intro.

I'm presently more a fan of Knockout than Handlebars so I'm curious if I can change that out, but otherwise this looks like it would fit very well with my latest design patterns relying on Node.JS. I could arrange major parts of my Node app into ember apps, deliver the static templates with Node or from a caching server then use node for the JSON using rest or when I can restrict to more modern browsers, use Socket.IO to authenticate and do CRUD operations. Lightweight, portable, client-centric and very responsive data-layer!

Now to go research more about ember.js :)

I was looking for this photo to share with fellow cohorts in +The Arcanum and it dawned on me that I actually won a contest with it. The contest was a 4th of July theme combined with baby-wearing (my wife +Jessica Richardson is an instructor for +Phoenix Babywearers )

+Google Glass I got the XE16 update but now only have the base apps despite the MyGlass website and app saying that I have other Glassware installed. Bug or just laggy?

I don't understand why +Google Developers wants to waste our time. I've been to I/O 3 times and have a pretty valid "need" to go this year (as much as such a thing can be needed for professional reasons). They found a way to save us time not having to fight with crashing servers only to enter us into a lottery and then tease us with a wild-goose-chase for mini-game links (really?!) that is draining my time away. Time I should be spending building apps.

I've already secured travel and accommodations, provided payment information, am a Google Apps for Enterprise and Google Cloud user (under my business account) and an Android developer. I've also been to last years Chrome Dev Summit (travel cost so that's 4 paid events) AND I'm a Glass Explorer.

I'm sure there are developers more vested than I, but knowing the types that are still getting into I/O, I can't fathom how I can't secure a position and this "ticket game" is getting very old.

How about a real filtering mechanism such as an actual developer challenge or test? Does my scripting to wget the entire GD website then search for and test goo.gl links (which skews their analytics) count as such a test in Google's mind?

Wow, what a morning! We’re happy to see so many new faces (and frames) in the Explorer community.  Just a quick update that - ack - we just sold out of Cotton, so things are moving really fast.

You can still purchase Glass and join the Explorer Program at glass.google.com/getglass, but hop to it because we’ll be closing up shop tonight.

Become a Glass Explorer on Tues April 15

Whoops. So... we’d planned to post this next week, but it looks like the cat's out of the bag now. Over the past several months, we’ve been trying out different ways to expand the Explorer program. Some of you signed up at Google I/O, some told us what you would do #ifihadglass , some were referred by a friend, some joined through their school or university. Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better. But every day we get requests from those of you who haven’t found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too. So in typical Explorer Program fashion, we’re trying something new. 

Next Tuesday, April 15th at 6am PDT, we’re opening up some spots in the Glass Explorer Program. Any adult in the US* can become an Explorer by visiting our site and purchasing Glass for $1500 + tax – and it now comes with your favorite shade or frame, thanks to feedback from our current Explorers. The number of spots available is limited, so mark your calendar if you want to get in. You can find us on Tuesday at: http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one

We’re excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear your thoughts about Glass.

*To everyone outside the US... we know. Sorry :( We’re just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries.

Story

Man of many trades, master of very few. Father, husband, entrepreneur, student, lover, Marine, and many other things.
Introduction
I've been involved in I.T. at least part-time since 1993 and full-time at an enterprise level since 1999 (USMC warehouse management systems). Currently I'm involved in virtually every aspect of maintaining a production network and related system critically responsible for $1m+ of business revenue (to include software/DB architecture and development). If my current venture doesn't pan out, I hope to find a future with Google, perhaps as a Developer Advocate where my vast knowledge-base could be well utilized and I would be exposed to fresh ideas (I love learning and sharing). I'm a true but tolerable INTJ (see Jung - Myers-Briggs or Keirsey Temperament). As is the case with most INTJ's, I don't respond well to people being mentally lazy, but I'm not antagonistic to the extent that INTJ's are stereotyped to be.
These guys are hard charging, Devil Dogs! No rainbow PT gear here boys and girls. Don't take my word for it though, go test yourself and see if you can keep up!

I've known Joe for years through this location (only professionally) and he has always taken great care of me. Anyone who's experienced differently likely brought it on themselves by having unrealistic expectations or an attitude that made them impossible to please. I generally only leave feedback myself when unhappy, but when I saw that comment, i had to speak up.

One employee was rude and uninformed. The other was kind, but uninformed and misinformed. Worse still, he was spreading misinformation to customers. I'm frustrated with Verizon so I thought I'd check out Sprints phones and their network performance. Verizon isn't looking so bad now.

Amazing store in general, but the low costs come with a trade-off; it can be hard to find help. Then again, i wouldn't say it's much worse than other retail stores these days. The store is clean, beautiful and original. The nature of the store does make it a bit difficult to navigate though so don't go if you're in a hurry. The review comparing Ikea to Disney Land put it well. To the people writing negative reviews, failing to follow the most basic rules of English grammar and punctuation, do yourself a favor and be quiet.

My experiences so far have been pleasant and the prices reasonable. I can't say they're great because I don't have much to compare to, but I don't have any complaints either.
