Google Glass ambivalence
While I'm not sure whether to be inspired or alarmed about the implications, I feel lucky to know a Google Glass Explorer in person. DA 11th Grader Mark Cohen is one of the planet's few product testers for Google's bold optical head-mounted display project.
Mark and I recently chatted about Glass and its utility on and off campus. He loves the product - finding new uses for it every day. Click here to see a short video demonstration (with Mark showing on his iPhone what he sees in his right eye).

Or here for thirty five arguments against Google Glass.
Or find Mark on campus. He's always ready for a good debate - and now well-stocked with supportive evidence.
