Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Thumbs up for @projectglass & #ifihadglass! Google Glass celebrates an amazing ten days of news, publicity and buzz-worthy, trending anecdotes as consumers begin talking about Glass in earnest, and what they'd do creatively with a pair if they ONLY had one -a marketer's dream!; Google's dynamic tech product is supposed to roll-out by end of 2013; #ijustine, @ijustine


Google YouTube Channel video: How It Feels [through Glass]. "Want to see how Glass actually feels? It's surprisingly simple. Say "take a picture" to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live. Directions are right in front of you. Speak to send a message, or translate your voice. Get the notifications that matter most. Ask whatever's on your mind and get answers without having to ask. All video footage captured through Glass." Uploaded February 20, 2013. http://youtu.be/v1uyQZNg2vE.

otherijustine YouTube Channel video: GOOGLE GLASS AND A PURPLE WATCH! Justine Ezarik -a.k.a. iJustine, one of our favorites- opines on Google Glass. Uploaded February 22, 2013. http://youtu.be/7vVo0jqx4dU
Above, at 3:37 of a video on multiple subjects made two days after her previous video, Justine talks about Google Glass and their just-ended contest to give away 8,000 pairs of these, but there's a catch: http://youtu.be/xHEFzTm6xD0There's no justice if Justine doesn't wind-up with a pair, because you know she'll use them, with viewers the winners.

I'd wanted to post the Google, iJustine and Joshua Toplosky videos last Saturday morning, a few hours after seeing them for the first time, but got distracted and wound-up doing some writing on the computer, cleaning around the house and listening to the "Nashville" soundtrack album. 


In retrospect, I'm glad that I didn't post anything about it because within 48 hours, there was more news about Google Glass, courtesy of Google co-founder Sergey Brin's wife, Ann, who was spotted by a TMZ cameraman wearing a pair before heading into an Oscar party Sunday night.

Sergey Brin on the touchscreen: 'it's kind of emasculating'

My last post on Google Glass was September 11, 2012, that featured Sergey brin in a video -
titled, Google's Sergey Brin previewing new 'Google Glasses'; England U-21 goalkeeper Ben Amos wearing Google-cam while balls are kicked at him during practice. The mind reels at the possibilities of this!; Wait until iJustine gets a pair of these!; @iJustine

(Yeah, I know, I wrote Glasses instead of Glass.)

Google Glass - For someone like me, to see it, much less, in-person, is to suddenly find your head swimming in creative and practical ideas and finding yourself thinking and talking about why you want one, nay, need one.


Which is why at an Oscar party in LA that was doubtless full of affluent and famous people, Ann Brin had the one intangible that everyone else in the room wanted as soon as they saw it.


Now that's currency and how you shape influential opinion-makers -make them realize that you have something that they don't have and, for all their money and clout, can't get.

Boom goes the technolgy dynamite!


Just imagine what hard-working investigative reporters -or sleuthy bloggers!or corruption-fighting investigators could do with this technology, without a tell-tale cameraman trailing them to give away the surprise to suspected crooked/sleazy targets of scrutiny.... 

To say nothing of watching a sport or special event LIVE in-person, and being able to effortlessly record or send LIVE the whole scene around you, whenever you want.
Especially doing so at your child or grandchild's ballgame or swim meet or play or at a wedding or...yes, a government meeting about a controversial subject that is sent LIVE back to another location, whether a TV studio or newsroom or a whole self-selecting network of friends or interested people who want to see what's REALLY going on.

I still want a jet pack, but until then, this will do nicely!

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
