There's only been 2 days out of 1 year where I haven't worn Glass.

1 day I was really sick
The other was because xe16 made Glass useless

Practical #io14  info for geeky #parents attending and carting their #children along from afar, like we do.

The I/O #daycare was fantastic last year and I hope it's the same this year - we had never left ours with anyone before (under 2) and it was very well set up and convenient and safe. And.it.was.free.as.part.of.the.conference.

They have an excellent ratio of caregivers to kids, feed them well and they even get their own "shwag", which was downright adorable.

They separated the little ones (still napping/toddlers) from the older ones with different activity areas. (FYI - last year mine was still nursing part time and it was a 2 block walk to the conference, not hard).

They had very good time coverage to attend anything at IO you wanted to. Long hours.

No complaints at all. If it enables you to maximize your conference time, use it. I hope they continue providing such excellence this year.

Google Now birthday messages can be sent to non-MyGlass contacts
This is either a really cool new feature or something I stumbled across - Google Now cards for birthday announcements now have menu items, which let you message the birthday celebrant...even if they're not a dedicated share contact of yours in MyGlass. The knock against birthday cards in XE12 was that they couldn't do anything functionally other than be dismissed, but that's all changed now.

Obviously the link is who I have in my Google+ circles, but this is neat and possibly a way to use the Google+ API to communicate with people outside your set of contacts.

(Thanks to my friend - but not MyGlass contact - +Mike DiGiovanni - for letting me use him as guinea pig for this demo. Happy birthday, Mike!)

And FYI - I captured the screen using the ADB command available for KitKat: adb shell screenrecord /sdcard/bday.mp4

It also helps address the problem of review padding.

Silly rules about not allowing people to wear Google Glass because they are worried about employees being recorded, but then allow people to walk around taking photos with a flash.
