Experimenting with the new App.net broadcast channels. Subscribe to my new channel: OMG IT’S A GIF BROADCAST
When I heard that Google would be letting more people into the Glass Explorer program, I decided to submit my #ifihadglass entry on Google+:
Honestly, I didn’t take time to think much about my submission. I spend a lot of time walking in SF, and I think this is one of the best ways to discover all the unique and interesting parts of the city. But, I only really wanted to get my hands (face?) on Glass so that I could figure out what new types of apps would be built, but I did not yet have a killer app idea of my own.
Now that I am wearing Glass, I realize how interesting it could be to journal my life via photos and videos captured with Glass. I already post photos with smartphones a lot, but with Glass, the photos are much more “raw,” and it enforces a first-person perspective. A lot of photos I post with Sprinter or Instagram are captured with a very intentional framing, and I might apply a filter to make a normal object on the street look a little more interesting. But with Glass, the focus will tend to be more my actual experiences and interactions with the world (i.e. it’s not all about pretty pictures).
I’ve decided to create a new blog that will only consist of posts that come from Glass: robthroughglass.com. It will be pretty experimental – I am going to share a lot more than I normally would, and so a lot of it might be really boring stuff. Also, you might see some more personal things that I wouldn’t normally share. You have been warned :)
