Great talk on using Node.js - both on server and clients - using a swarm of Amazon EC2 instances.

How do you expect others to react to you wearing Glass?  I've heard the term 'Gargoyle', referring to the ability of Glass to record streaming video constantly.  Are people worried about wearing these in public with video recording turned on?  Tips / suggestions welcome.

+Bob Miner From what I have picked up it can only record for 10seconds at a time. It can however take time lapse photos limitedly with obviously space and WiFi connection to send to the cloud.
I have also read an article where there is a visible light that can be seen where as the explorer you see being recorded and as a by stander a light from the glass emitted to the eye.

Just got my invite also.  So excited to see what we can create with glass!  Cell phone screens are so old school now... :-)

A few years ago, I learned the term 'perceived affordance' it's something like when a consumer envisions something they can do with a product or service, that they couldn't do before.

What's you favorite perceived affordance of Glass interface over a smartphone screen?

#ifihadglass I would create mobile travel software that displays information for Lexington and Concord, MA as you walk around those towns.

It'd be cool if there was a rear-facing camera on Glass, perhaps at the end of one of the eyeglass arms.  Then you could see what's behind you in the Glass viewer while seeing what's in front of you with normal sight.  Just a random thought...

The connection will be tethered to a wifi or bluetooth source. I hope I can tie into my home wifi or xfinity wifi when ever I am in a covered zone.

BTW, if you haven't read William Gibson's book "Virtual Light", it might be a fun thing to read before getting your glass.  Amazing what he envisioned 20 years ago that's becoming reality now.

Agreed. I'd also say Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson if only so as to understand when people call us "gargoyles".

Very excited!  Glass will change how people interact with each other and the real world.  William Gibson's "Virtual Light" becoming reality.  Very cool.

:-)  You should patent using glass for 3D applications.
