I would love to get nominated for a @shortyaward. Can you help me? If so, go to www.shortyawards.com/hilary25, say why you think I should get it for business blogging and then tweet it out.  It's that simple and I would so appreciate it.  Thank you in advance.

Beginner/Intermediate Glass Development Class

This Saturday, 9 August, in Manhattan.
 
Designing and Developing for Google Glass
Beginner and Intermediate Classes

When I taught a class in NYC a few months ago on developing for Google Glass with the Mirror API, we had a lot of requests to go into things in more depth and detail. So we will!

For the next run of the course, on Saturday August 9th in Manhattan, we've split it into two courses:

Hope to see you August 9th!

The #googleglass device of #glassexplorer Ron Khordi, founder of #diamondconciergeservice was confiscated just now at the JA New York Jewelry show (will be returned when we leave) Show managers read our press release (see link) stating photography is not allowed at the show, even though they were contacted prior to the show with advanced notice. They also tried to confiscate my camera enabled smartphone. When we asked why everyone else can bring a phone, we received a blank stare and they relented that we keep the phone. When asked what is the difference between handheld or head mounted camera, we got a blank stare. When asked if the frame of the video is only the jewelry product with permission of the vendor, then how would anyone know it was filmed at the show, what copyright or privacy is being violated? - we got a blank stare. When asked how would anyone know if the vendor films his own product with our Glass since they want to market their product, isn't the point of show for a vendors to market their product? Vendors are not allowed to film their own products during the show? We got a blank stare. When told we are going to post vendor products and interviews on social media to help their marketing, no vendor would ever decline the opportunity, we got a blank stare. What is YOUR opinion on using Glass at a tradeshows when all vendors of a niche industry are in one location and you can easily share with the world what vendors have to offer? Is this really a privacy or copyright issue since we all have camera-enabled mobile devices? Or is it unfounded backlash against Glass for no rational reason?

It was the International Vision Expo. Each show typically decides what their policy will be. Glass will always be one of those tough decisions for events to accept or deny because of photography policies. Its obviously super easy to snap pictures without others noticing with it. I know I can never walk up to a casino floor with them on.

The tough decision is when Glass is also attached to a prescription. Should attendees walk the show floor blind? I think most of the no photo or video policies will have to accept an honor system for people wearing Glass or change their policy.

Seeking candidates for a pilot online reality TV show filmed with #GoogleGlass.  To qualify you must be actively searching in New York to purchase an expensive jewelry piece (actual purchase not required, but you probably will!) Couples are preferred, but not required.  Email glass@diamondconciergeservice.com to learn more.   #Glassexplorers   #Googleglassexplorers

What do you think of the new #GoogleGlass design ?
Last week, Google was granted a patent for what deceptively looks like a normal pair of glasses, but is referred to in the patent office document as a wearable display device...possibly a new Google Glass Design
