Interesting take on google glass
That could get ugly re: political correctness and blacklisting. Just when you thought FB linked comment sections were bad...

This sounds like the hipster version of the myth “Nothing to hide, nothing to fear.” It’s a false assumption because those in charge can change the rules at anytime as to what constitutes a crime or social infraction.

Also, being an “asshole” is relative. Recently a guy was taken to task online because during a convention he asked a woman for coffee during an elevator ride. He broke now laws but was socially shamed because he got on the bad side of the wrong person. This is what Google Glass will bring forth: a society of tattle-tales who will make mountains out of molehills. When you give everyone a gavel, everyone becomes judge and jury.

Also, what slang expressions did we have as teens that are woefully politically incorrect now. You really want all that preserved digitally?

This subject has been written about elsewhere. For details, look up “Debunking a myth: If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.”
