This weekend I flew from Melbourne to San Francisco. I am here to catch up with friends, work with the Yammer team for a few days and then fly to New York for a week of adventure. You probably already know this and have seen it happening checkin by checkin or tweet by tweet. I have been thinking about how new this exploration experience is and how awesome it has been being able to share each moment with friends scattered across the planet, despite the reality often being that I am wandering around the city by myself! Contrast this to the experience of explorers less than a century ago, like Shackleton's isolating trip to the antarctic https://kindle.amazon.com/post/ISG9pKGTRtus9KwzMm2ZEw. If Shackleton had Twitter and Foursquare the story would have been incredibly different. 

Today we are exploring the old ground of the world with the new ground of the web being layered invisibly over the top. In New York this week models walked the runway wearing Google Glass http://mashable.com/2012/09/09/google-glass-dvf-fashion-week/. As you can see in the photo, this meant that the world could see what the model saw the moment that it happened. This is a new perspective on the world and in realtime brings a particularly new awareness to what is happening around us all. Soon we will have more empathy for the people around us as we see the stories (or lack of stories) that have formed their history. Soon it will be exponentially more difficult to commit a crime because each person's eyes will see and record everything in front of them. Soon we will likely be able to fulfil the buddhist idea of experiencing the suffering of all living things. 

Walking the world is incredibly different when you are walking it with the world at your side.

It's a combination of a fear of missing out, and a hope of being missed.
But nobody on my computer misses me anymore.

Checking out the roll-out ... not scheduled to get access until post 2015 @ 10km for Melbourne CBD. I wish we had the Korean zeal for making real connectivity available to all.
