First week with Google Glass, and first post at thinkwearables.

http://thinkwearables.com/google-glass/troy-glass/
I received the long awaited email from Google with my invitation to the Glass Explorer program. My first feelings were of excitement but quickly shifted to me rationalizing the decision to spend a large sum of money on an unproven technology. There was also a feeling of being late to the party; despite having been …

Some slides from +Marc Benioff's keynote (http://youtu.be/adjvEEs1A6w) that was supposed to be at Oracle Open World until Larry Ellison cancelled it at the last minute. Marc is a great leader and speaker.

random thoughts

1. waffles are not ubiquitously-consumed or a 'must-have' see manpacks.com for an item that is a must-have, is ubiquitous to one segment of the population i.e. men, is a chore to shop for and is something that the other segment of the population (women) can buy/gift.
2. shipping frozen food can be expensive and fraught with delivery/pickup issues.
3. the generic netflix for _blank_ model is definitely worth spending cycles on to find the product(s) that meet some of the criteria outlined in (1)
4. identify a product that also has an associated technology filter and you can can build sustainable competitive advantage (as netflix has done with streaming) and which manpacks does not have which will allow you to mop up manpacks like ideas and become the amazon of the direct-2-home product market.
5. related models are the traditional 'book/cd clubs' (get a book in the mail, if u like it do nothing, if not send it back) which are now 'shop by mail clubs' see shoedazzle.com raised $40m http://allthingsd.com/20110513/shoedazzle-walks-away-with-40-million-from-andreessen-horowitz/ recently

Hitwise looks at 10 million peoples' web browsing and concludes: It's now suburban parents and well-off empty nesters who are most disproportionately likely to visit Google Plus! Status Seeking Singles too, but it's already way way down among the Colleges and Cafes crowd. (That means if you're in a college cafe and you want to keep Plussing, you'd better get down to making the babies!)

This is smart financial engineering i.e.
- get a $50- worth of product for a recurring $4- per month and simultaneously be assured of having 'solved' the underlying problem completely.
- since earthquake supplies do 'expire' there is a need to 'keep supplies fresh' which is a chore, can be forgotten etc. which a service can take care of.
- the market for this should be institutions and small businesses initially as opposed to consumers. This is because small businesses and institutions have moral, legal & public-relation reasons to ensure that their first-aid and disaster-preparedness is 'dealt with'.
- instead of leading with price one could lead with the 'assurance' that acme corp. can for $x a month be assured that they are in complete compliance with disaster-preparedness etc.
- insurance companies & chambers of commerce may make good channel partners
