I may not wear Glass everyday, or all day, but I still do use it quite frequently. I'm also amazed how many people still ask about Glass when I am out and about.
 
So many have accepted the challenges of being a Glass Explorer...
Now it's Time to Celebrate on May 12th.

#GlassExplorerDay
#May12GlassExplorerDay

Everyone is invited :)

I wear it for family event and will take it to the upcoming sci-fi cons. Still the best way to capture moments as they happen.

Out running...hazy sunrise. This is a view I've seen many times before, but today was special because it marked the end of year 2. Tomorrow begins the third year of my daily running streak.

My latest experiment with Android Wear has gone the way I kind of expected — with the ZenWatch 2 sitting on the charger and the Pebble Time back on my wrist.

tl;dr I like Pebble better than Android Wear for reasons that are important to me.

Anyway, these are the reasons that kill Android Wear for me:

1. Simplicity: The Pebble is very simple and very easy to use. I get my notifications and they are reliable. And while I don't mind charging my watch everyday, it is nice to not have to worry about it.

2. The physical buttons are a killer feature for me. I often use the music controls around the house and in the car and it is really nice to be able to skip a track or play/pause without looking at my wrist.

3. Ability to view the screen outside. Some Android Wear devices are better than others here, but none are as good as my Pebble.

4. Ability to have my phone completely silent. I want a buzz on my wrist — and nothing else. Pebble allows me to do that. My phone is in Do Not Disturb mode and the Pebble will still buzz with an incoming notification. I cannot seem to make that happen with the most recent Android Wear update (though please correct me if I am wrong).

+Joseph Cappellino Maybe I'm missing something, but my phone goes from an audible alert, to buzz, to do not disturb.

I do know about that setting in the Wear app, but even with that on, I still seem to get random beeps and buzzes.

I don't know, I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

I just installed OS X El Capitan on a 2007 iMac -- not sure if that makes me brave or stupid. #throughglass

First time visiting America's Oil Express. Seems the name held true to my experience as it was express -- in and out in about 30 minutes (on a Thursday morning). Otherwise, the price seemed fair, staff was professional and the waiting room was clean. Seems I'll be going back for my next oil change.

Fast and friendly service. I've only eaten here one time so far, but that one time has convinced me to come back for more. My visit was for lunch, and I had the Blackened Chickened Caesar Wrap.

Nice (newer) play area for the kids. A fun place to just hang out, do some walking. Also a good place to take the kids fishing and on the cooler days -- see the manatees.
