[Photo taken while walking in the Missouri State campus wearing Glass] Sometimes I get a great idea and don't have time to write about it at that moment. This is one of those times. It's probably no secret that I was part of the Google Glass beta and that I used that time fairly purposely, … Continue reading Post-Glass post
The Explorer program for Google Glass officially ended January 19th, an unexpected end, but not really. I did not expect it on that day, but I expected it. Glass as-is is not panning out to be the consumer device Google hoped for, but I can't say it is a lost cause. I believe its best … Continue reading An Explorer no more
Here is the secret to the photography habit: wear Google Glass every day. On the days I did not wear Glass--usually because the frames are not very flattering and my regular frames really are flattering--I lived through a series of moments, never predictable, when I would wish I was wearing Glass so that I could … Continue reading Google Glass and Project 365

Living so close to St. Louis, the outrageous denial of reporters' right to photograph and record in public shocked me to the core. As a participant in Project 365, I think about what is permissible and what is not as a photographer and a videographer. As one who wears Google Glass, I feel I am … Continue reading Photographer’s rights
Questions, They got questions. I got a check-in email from Glass support and the questions were good, but since I am who I am, I wish I could have said more for each response, although they did give text boxes for about half the questions. Luckily, that is what blogging is for. How satisfied are … Continue reading Check-in with Google Glass
I have my photo a day but no access right now. It should show up on my feed in the morning. Google changed the options for sending video and photos via "share" and I haven't found the best option yet for media I want but may not want to immediately share via Facebook or Google+. … Continue reading Waiting
