Yesterday morning I received and email from Google, inviting me to be part of the Google Glass project as one of their Explorers.
Most of you know what Google Glass is, but if you don't, it's basically a computer that you wear on your head like a pair of glasses.
Being the gadget geek that I am, I jumped at the chance to join the Glass Project. I filled out the form yesterday and I should be getting my Google Glass in the next week.
I will be sure to give you guys my impressions of Google Glass and my review.
How could Google Glass be used in a newsroom? I will look at it closely and see how it might be able to be used in the world of TV news.
People that walk around wearing their Google Glass are often referred to as GlassHoles, mainly because they have something that no one else can get yet.
So, I am fully prepared to be called a GlassHole.
Trust me when I say, I have been called much worse.
Note: I have heard that people that have been picked as a Google Glass Explorer get give 3 invites to other people to join the project. I don't know if this is true or not, but if you're interested, let me know and I will consider putting you on the list.
