Awww now I feel special, Google made a "book" for Glass Explorers about the first stages of Glass, now they're progressing towards a full consumer launch later in the year.
Can't wait to see where it goes next!

Here's what the email said:
Hi there,
It’s been an exciting ride. Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. We asked you to be pioneers, and you took Glass further than we ever expected. We’ve learned a ton, we’ve "graduated" from Google[x] labs, and now we’re hard at work and you’ll see future versions of Glass when they’re ready.
Since we’re focusing all our efforts on the future, we’ll be closing the Explorer Program on January 19. We realize you might have questions about what this means for you. New feature development on the Explorer Edition will stop while we work on the next version of Glass, but you can still call or email us anytime with questions, thoughts or feedback.
In the meantime, we’ve created Glass Vol 001 to honor you, our Explorers. It’s a collection of photos and stories from the early days of Glass.

The Explorer Program was started to get Glass into the hands of early pioneers who would forge the way. You’ve taken Glass to the edges of the world, from the streets of New York to the tundras of Antarctica. You’ve captured miracles every day, from your wedding vows and your child’s first steps to new ways to save lives. You’ve humbled us by taking what we started and doing more than we ever could have dreamed. Let’s celebrate your bold and brave steps into an uncharted world.
Thank you for being part of the story. We’ll see you in the next chapter.
The Glass Team

Doesn't sound like it's going anywhere to me yeah? :D

You know what I think should be added to the NZ curriculum, ideally taught even in primary or intermediate?
Cooking: on a budget!
Teach kids how to make their own pasta or noodles even, teach them what goes with rice, show how you can make a stir fry with little more than some soy sauce, noodles, cauliflower, a carrot and maybe some capsicum? Meat optional!
Even could go as far as teaching them how to grow parsley and other small items?

Hubby and I wish this school up here would do this such valuable skills to have. I can teach my kids cleaning, cooking, sewing,gardening, knitting, spinning even basic woodwork ( always had a hammer in hand as a kid since Dad was a boatbuilder) and metalwork. Just to find a few more hours each day to teach them everything would be nice :)

One of the cool things about the Xperia Z-series is the weekly / monthly "highlights" they do
Man it's been a long month, can't believe it was 4 weeks ago I was in the Gold Coast now!

Internet in NZ... This is why the UFB uptake and installation process is so bad, here's Chorus "UFB Update" from May this year:
"Around 30% of 'Connect' appointments are being rescheduled"
So 1 in every 3 appointments fail? That's insane!

"Of that 30%, only 13% is Chorus fault."
Doesn't seem too bad until you see how they've laid out the numbers
13% is just under HALF of all failings are the fault of Chorus (Page 11), not 13% of the 30%!
Of 10 failed jobs, a good 4-5 will be Chorus screw-up.

Next page though they make it sound like they're not at fault:
"Chorus has taken responsibility for bringing the industry together to agree consistent criteria for the end user experience and respective roles in implementation"

How about you sort your own back yard out first Chorus before telling others what to do? Get your own ducks in a row for starters then worry about everything else...

With Glass, I find I end up with a bunch of photos like this when other people try it on...

Divine food and fantastic service! Touring through as an english-only speaker, the service was great, the menu had a fantastic spread, and pretty good value too. The good though, quite possibly some of the best we've had on our travels thus far!
