Google Glass: My Glimpse

Just down the slow moving line was a gentleman who was wearing google glass.  As I was duty bound to stand in the spot I was in and keep the line moving only when requested I asked him how long he had been using it and what he thought of it.

It was loud on the Expo floor and so he only half heard my question.  Instead of answering me he pulled Google Glass off and handed it to me and said go ahead.  I am a geek....i was shocked and then with the gadget frenzy I haven't felt in a while I quickly donned the glasses and tried to focus on the block of lens sitting just above my right eye.

Inspired by Young People

As my wife and I are Dorm Parents at a boarding school I am often inspired and taught by folks younger than me.  They may not know they inspire me and they may not understand how asking a question can inspire but it often does.   

In order to answer a question you must understand the questioner and take a moment to live inside them and look out at yourself and the world through someone else's viewpoint.  Somewhere in here is a lesson about listening that I am only just now discovering for myself but I digress.

Gaming Podcast by Gamer Friends....

I  recently had some friends start a gaming podcast.  Its about an hour long but covers some current gaming news and platform related news.  It wonderfully has the viewpoint of both genders which is sorely lacking elsewhere.

Go Check it out!

This first episode covers some of the Playstation debacle and a game called Little Inferno (Trailer) as well as the Game and Kickstarter for Star Citizen.   Not to mention the main focus of the podcast a review of The Wolf Among Us.

Some brilliant author please...

Someone needs to write a book about how our whole society is completely without regard for others. We don't allow for other religions, other races, other thoughts, other beliefs, other viewpoints.  We have lost the idea of common ground and compromise.  Each side becoming more and more polarized. 

Mature adults should be able to allow ideas and thoughts contrary to their own to exist in the world without recoiling.  They should be able to understand those people exist and that in order to live on the same rock floating around the sun we have to find common ground.  Each needing to give a little in order to come to an understanding.

Instead we are devolving into a group of warring factions that simply want to erradicate the members of any group that is not our own.   The truth is not black and white. Its messy, and its gray.  The human brain has trouble with ambiguity. I understand that but can we please put some higher brain functions into action?
