There are lots of rumors swirling about the demise of Google Glass. Developers are leaving the project, apps are being abandoned and there is a distinct lack of social media noise being generated by or about Glass.
My two cents on these rumors – I think Google made a strategic error when rolling out Google Glass. While I believe Google Glass with the right person in the right context can practically move mountains, the brains at Google thought matching social media tech gurus with Google Glass would be a more perfect idea. Turns out Google Glass was the perfect instrument to illuminate what a-holes they are in real-time. You put perfectly good Google Glass on a tech a-hole and you get what is now known as a ‘Glasshole’. Couple this with a public that is not too happy their illusion of privacy being torn down and you have the makings of a magnificent disaster.
Agree? Disagree? Have no idea what Google Glass is? Let me know in the comment section.
