Talking Glass

Since being selected as a Google Glass Explorer in June, I have had a lot of fun learning about Glass, wearable technology, privacy, modern programming, security, rapid design iteration, and celebrity. Wait . . .  celebrity?!?

Glass gives back what you put in and when I have stepped out, evangelist-like, people's interest and enthusiasm has followed. From a 94-year old acquaintance telling his friends about me and my 'gadget glasses', to random people in public engaging me to ask questions and ask for a try, to the planned out events I have listed below, people are curious, engaged, and excited about the slice of the future which Google Glass displays.

As my journey continues (I get to swap my Glass out for the next version next week!), I can see that more and more people will come to understand that this is about getting technology out of the way so it can truly assist us be more in touch with the world and with those around us. Check out these presentations and interviews about Glass . . . enjoy!

Google Glass + Mediasite: Consumer Video in the Enterprise

Today I gave a live webinar at Sonic Foundry in Madison, WI that discussed how to use a consumer device, in this case Google Glass in the corporate setting. I am told that we had 500+ people watch live and you can check it out, too! Let me know what you think in the comments.

Here is what was discussed:
  • How the Google Glass + Mediasite integration could help large organizations communicate.
  • The revolutionary impact the first-person point of view will have on education, training and communication.
  • How Glass could provide hands-on learning with detailed demonstrations and labs.
  • A step-by-step demo on how to get Glass video into a corporate video management platform.
Check out the slides and Mediasite Catalog that contains the test videos.
