    Update: A Google spokesperson responds: "It is still very early days for Glass, and we expect that as with other new technologies, such as cell phones, behaviors and social norms will develop over time."
    If that is not the most telling quote of all....... Don't worry, we will make it socially acceptable to post your face wherever and whenever we wish with or without your consent.

    I absolutely love the saying "I have nothing to hide, so I don't care."
    Till you want to hide something, or just don't want anyone knowing, and no longer have the option of not having plastered everywhere.
    "That will never happen to me, the world is too large and I am too insignificant"
    Till your face is plastered all over the web cause of something incredibly stupid that you did or might have happened to you that would not otherwise have been known.

    Have a nice day?

    remember though

    When in public, there is no reasonable expectation to the right to privacy. Anyone can take your picture at any time they wish and do what they want with it. There are only a couple of things they can't do. And I believe that is, use your picture or likeness to advertise without consent and an offer for compensation of some kind, or defamatory reasons, or anything of an explicit nature.
    Other than that, we are all fair game.

    I don't know all the laws surrounding public picture taking, but those I believe are some.
    And Google doesn't care what the laws state really. If they can gather your information and get away with it, they don't care,
    just run a search on google and privacy concerns. You will be busy for a while reading.

    Trust me someone is going to do something stupid, and if it gets on YouTube you can bet the lawyers will find an opening in the law. Once that opening has been turned loose the door will be open for all who sometimes do foolish things.

    The wife was in the hospital and then a care home a couple weeks last summer and both institutions had a no picture rule due to the HIPPA privacy laws.

    I've always wanted to wear my smartphone (in the case Windows Phone because if you examine the google glass UI, it's by far too similar to Windows Phone to be original) on my face.

    Said no one ever.

    just keep the following in mind.....

    This next generation, will not know a world that was not linked in to everything
    They will not know a world without facebook.
    They will not know a world without a smartphone.
    They will not know a world that didn't spill every minute of your life on the net, via social networks.
    They will not understand or know what privacy really means.

    Orwellian Days are upon us, and the tidal wave is only growing.

    one of my favorite sayings,,,, "Throw a frog in hot water and he will jump out, put him in cold water and turn on the heat and he will sit there till he boils"....

    And my newest favorite saying.,.... "panem et circenses"
    I encourage you all to look it up.
