Lots of people – knowing about the project of the Digital Diet – sent me a funny video about Google Glass. The video shows you instructions of how not to be an asshole with Google Glass, because it’s really easy to be one when you got it. They called it “Glasshole”.

In other words, the fact that Google Glass is out, makes this project even more important. The technology is speeding up, but we didn’t yet come up with behaviours and regulations of how to use it. The next five years will show us many other bionic gadgets – bionic eyes, hands, etc. That is why we need to get more aware and discuss these issues, as soon as possible.
