Well when there's a dialectical unity of opposites and BOTH opinions exists robert, it's clearly a matter of taste. You are after all Robert Scoble / if you were an unknown rather ordinary looking older gentleman with no pull in the tech community, I am curious if they would say the same thing to you. This is beyond tech / this is a question of fashion... When you see teenagers and models emulating google glass chic (for more than a passing season) maybe you'll be right. I think it's like a Segway in every way (even I ran out to try one because the physics impressed me...).. Then you look up and catch sight of yourself in a reflection of a window and it hits you "wow. I look like a complete idiot". Does anyone actually like wearing glasses if they don't have to? No.
Simultaneously Robert Scoble you can be flattered that people esteem your notoriety to such a degree that they will even compliment you on aesthetically unpleasing eye wear. It's like gaga and the meat dress ;o)
+Robert Scoble what do you find your self doing with your Google Glass the most? Which features do you use? How do you deal with the battery life ? I got mine, and not really sure how to fit them into my life.
+Robert Scoble I agree with you - the amount of curiosity created by glass makes it cool. In fact I did an experiment at a well known bar in London and it was fascinating the number of women who came to chat, wanted to try on. Same in Delhi.
