Hmm, yes, fair point. I admit, I don’t *want* to interact with someone wearing google glasses either. :-/ But then, I don’t like interacting with people who are staring at their smartphones, and that’s becoming culturally acceptable.

that’s totally different, though. interacting with someone on a smartphone is the same as interacting with someone who is distracted by anything else: knitting, TV, a book, driving. but with google glass, you can have a perfectly “normal” conversation with someone but nevertheless be completely aware that you’re being recorded, meaning that you’re no longer acting naturally. essentially, everything in the world becomes reality tv.
