You said it man, not me.

PARANOIA...pure paranoia.

Nice to see people condoning neandethal behaviour..

when people display a socially Neanderthal behavior, they might get a socially Neanderthal reaction...when a 3 year old child runs out into the street, you give him a smack on the butt that creates a brief amount of pain, why?...because at that young age, he is unable to understand verbal language pertaining to the dangers of that street.

Ford god's sake, of course not. I don't condone violence against anyone. But I also don't believe people should be able to film anyone anywhere any time- its a little self-centered to think you have a right to do so.


The best part about not living in a dictatorship is the freedom to do as i wish, when i wish as long as im not breaking the law.


Like it or not, people are offended by such intrusions, especially inside an establishment. I would extend that to on the streets as well if you got up close to someone and filmed their conversations.


The girl wasn't filming anyone in particular..just showing her friends the glassses. If i wish to tape my son, the sky, cars passing or a dog crapping in the street it is my right to do so as a person has no expectation of privacy on the street.


Where people should and should not be allowed to film, in my opinion, can't be explicitly stated. It's a continuum of shades of grey. Contexts are important and change. No matter what extreme example to propose, I'm going to disagree with you on this particular case.


The woman wasnt taping anyone with the final end of using that recording for a legal or illegal purpose nor as a third party to any conversation. She was showing someone the glasses, as you'd show anyone a new phone or tablet..


And why does not willing to be on film every second = technophobe? Absolute nonsense.


It boils down to what the man in the video said - "These people here don't like technology..", what he meant to say was "These guys and girls don't like people with money drinking in their bar"...They felt intimidated by the girls money maybe, not by he glasses.

At the end of the day she was ROBBED by the people you claim attacked her because they felt their privacy was under attack??

They roobed her for her money...and her glasses..they're theives..not innocent hurt bystanders..

Must be a disaster when you withdraw money from an ATM and you just begin to blindly attack it for recording you. Mate, you must just be a trail of destruction every where you go!, train station, bus station, supermarket! pretty much everywhere, surprised your not in jail.
edit on 16-3-2014 by Bellor because: (no reason given)


my expectation of NOT being recorded, would be by any "stranger off the street" in a private setting (home, car, backyard, or personal property), or a place where I might be imbibing in alcohol (bar, private celebration, etc.)....and don't forget, these glasses can do this without your knowledge, by anyone, anywhere. when I go to any of the places you suggest, I do not have an expectation of privacy, hence, the lack of an arrest record.


So you do a lot of illegal # in private?

Might want to reevaluate your life a bit.

well.. no. it's no different than most other android devices. except it is active. It's not always recording.

She was recording it on purpose, no different than if you were walking around with your android phone recording someone.

If someone had walked up to you and snatched your phone.. but wait, don't tell me, you don't have one of those obnoxious 'smart fones' because you are not going to submit to the nsa spying on ya.

Well if someone had walked up to me and snatched my device, no matter if I had glued it to a hat, I'd be uploading a bit more than OMG.



First off I never said it was ok what they did to her....but its nice of you just to try to turn it around that way...

And it is different...that is...you dont know if it is recording....I find it annoying...if someone takes out their smartphone you at least see they have their phone out and could have the option of deciding if they are taking a pic or a video..with the glasses you have to just assume everything you are doing is being recorded by that person.

If she came up to me and said "hey I have google glasses on can I record you"...id probably be ok with it...but when someone is walking around wearing that it is annoying. Imagine being in any profession and someone records you doing a shot..and then they post it online. No big deal right? That could be twisted in 1000 different ways. Would you enjoy some guy walking around in a bar with his cellphone out the whole time pointed at people?

Edit: I do understand that its not just a video camera and that it could be used in many great ways...just like a smart phone..im not against the product as a whole.

Especially in bars, where drinking lowers inhibition, people are not particularly inhibited from engaging in whatever neanderthal behavior comes to mind. People who go into bars should keep that in mind even if they aren't wearing Google Glass.

Look, you're obviously a smart person. So you must have accidentally missed where I said I don't condone violence. This is getting tiresome- you win. Congrats.

So many Luddites and uneducated people present in this thread.

It's amazing how technology that will be able to revolutionize human existence can be so demonize and derided upon its onset. Some of you all are a case study and a half. However, to each his own. If people would prefer to look at glasses as half empty, who am I to tell them they are wrong. Enjoy your subjective negative analysis of augmented reality and wearable technology. I'll enjoy the benefits.

pffft…

The armored cameras high up on walls and poles are Big Brother. Theres nothing we can do about them.

People that go into a bar and drink are relieving the stress of every workaday life where they are prodded, poked and monitored all day long.

OMG they took my hidden camera… what did you expect?

Does she wear it in the bathroom too?

Sorry, right to privacy notions aren't disappearing from peoples minds simply because cameras are everywhere.

This incident kind of bears that out.

so...if someone says after a long hard day at work, and with a few beers in him, that "his boss and his job f'in sucks"...that video should be available online for whoever wants to see it?....1984 anyone?

That idiot got exactly what she had coming to her. Just because a good number of people are into social media and are comfortable being under constant surveillance and enjoy sharing every aspect of their life with the entire planet, doesn't mean every one is or should be. If you want to film/photograph/record someone in a manner that may threaten their sense of privacy, especailly when they're just tring to relax and have a good time, show some damned decency and ask permission first!


How about people

show some damned decency


And politely escort her out of the bar,

I love that people get so violent about it too, Its such a weird Dichotomy.

Lets see Government spys on everything we see and do, crickets.

Private citizen playing with a tech toy, RAGE.

You know, reminds me of when someones being bullied, but they can't attack the bully, so they go for the next target and scream about their Privacy.

Google Glass is the stupidest thing ever. Anyone wanting to wear one has some very serious issues.

Why? wearing a Heads Up Display sounds fantastic. imagine the apps. navigation, maybe even down the line up to the second blood sugar and other health monitoring, etc. The possibilities are nearly limitless.
Suggesting it is stupid is like suggesting the smart phone is useless, or any other new technology to date.

yes, lots of luddites and paranoid. But, keep in mind which forum this is, and which website its on. It doesn't represent the average mindset of the west in general, just the fringe.
I can see some points mind you about the recording function of google glass as a bit concerning, but ultimately, I am not sure what type of people are going to be videoing random strangers and uploading it to youtube or whatever...nobody gives a crap about what you are doing unless you like light yourself on fire (then yeah, there may be videos appearing). But, it would be nice if there was a little led light that turned on when in record mode...otherwise the apemen will be confused.

As far as the crappy bar she got robbed at...well, they seen technology and figured she had money and toys..so she got robbed in the dive bar. shoulda sprayed em with mace. (or in Georgia, just shoot them with a gun)

Nah, if it comes between putting my kid into a situation where violence is the only solution, then I simply choose not to put him in that situation in the first place. I generaly make a point in everyday life of not raising my hands to cause acts of pain so chances of me doing it to my own child are pretty much nil.

Is that what I said? I was thinking more along the lines of the guy with a few beers in him beating on someone if they did something that rubs him the wrong way, whether it's wearing Google Glass or something else he doesn't like.

Who goes to bars anyway? I'm over 30 and never stepped foot in one and doubt I would ever.. but to each his own.
Since you lack personal experience you may want to check out this security cam footage starting about about three and a half minutes when you can see what can happen in bars...people can get beat up for just saying the wrong thing. I'm not condoning it or saying it's right, I'm just saying that it happens.

Bar brawl starts around 3:30


There's what people SHOULD do, and what they ACTUALLY do. The two are not always the same.

I have a sneaking suspicion that google-glass wearers are gonna be the next victims of the knockout game.


When the industrial revolution was ramping up, the Luddites and other special interests groups did the same. They torched and tore apart anything "machine"-looking to try to stem the tide of mechanizing the production ability of the world.

This may be the same thing but, instead of being driven by greed, it will be driven by ignorance and fear.

I've often wondered how far this will go when we start having people show up with exoskeletons and cybernetic enhancements (especially on disabled people). Racism is only a symptom of stupidity; it will extend beyond race if they are given a target to bully and fear.

Did I miss something? Did someone strike her? Sounds like she was lambasted and harassed for doing what she claimed she wasn't....i.e. recording strangers at the bar. Wearables are ridiculous anyway people have already lost the ability to socialize normally, lets detach some more by putting it on our faces.
