Can you imagine anything that would inspire marketing creativity more than a device that allows you to view the Internet all the time, everywhere … like a digital layer across the world?

That certainly seems to be the promise of Google Glass, perhaps the boldest step forward in the trend of “wearable technology.”  In my mind, this will be a transformational opportunity for, well … everything! Education. Connection. Discovery. Entertainment. Business.

  • Is Google Glass a win for wearable technology or the next Segway?
  • Do the “eyes” have it, or does wearable technology belong someplace else?
  • What business problems does Google Glass really solve?
  • A can of worms for privacy, or just another Kodak moment?
  • Does “cool” trump “dork?”
  • The Devil’s bargain with privacy.
  • A practical view of Google Glass from Jamie the bartender.
