One reason there’s a backlash against Google glasses is that they try to bring the online rules into the offline world. Suddenly, anything can be recorded, and there’s the expectation (if the product succeeds) that everything will be recorded. The product is called ‘glass’ instead of ‘glasses’ because Google imagines a world where every flat surface behaves by the online rules. [The day after this talk, it was revealed Google is seeking patents on showing ads on your thermostat, refrigerator, etc.]

Well, people hate the online rules!

	
Google’s answer is, wake up, grandpa, this is the new normal. But all they’re doing is trying to port a bug in the Internet over to the real world, and calling it progress.

You can dress up a bug and call it a feature. You can also put dog crap in the freezer and call it ice cream. But people can taste the difference.
