Thirty-five Arguments Against Google Glass

Kate posted this fascinating, and lengthy, article proposing Thirty-Five Arguments Against Google Glass. As you can imagine, it pretty much covers all the concerns you can think of - privacy being at the top of the list.

I suggest reading the top five or ten right now and not just tossing them into your favorite Read Later app - as this is a subject worth thinking on all day. For me, the biggest question is - can you even stop a technology like this from becoming commonplace? Imagine you had these same privacy concerns with cellphones / smartphones, what would you possibly do to stop them from proliferating? The marketing behind them will surely defeat any underlying concerns about creating a Surveillance Police State, right? Fascinating topic.
