+Google Glass Google Glass needs a lot more “sexy” and “cool” people using Glass. Too often, we’re seeing geeks wearing them, ranting about them, and people need to realize it can be useful for normals too. #letmehelpyou

Introduction

Once upon a time in a land far, far away there was an ambitious young lad named Riz. With over 16 years experience in programming and innovating new entertainment  technologies through founding three startups to date, Riz is a noted expert in the adoption of emerging technologies particularly in the mobile space for media properties and consumer brands.

Riz has founded (or co-founded) three businesses spanning the worlds of entertainment, music, fashion and technology. The first two became pretty successful with one leading to a partnership with Warner/Ultra Records and the other leading to a partnership with RIM/Blackberry. The third spawned Social-Gear and that story is soon to be told.
