I have trouble seeing how Glass will ever be socially acceptable. Google should focus on making it useful without interaction (Google Now, etc). Anything that requires tapping and scrolling could just as well be done with a mobile phone.

While on vacation in San Diego last week, I spied someone wearing Google Glass for the first time. And I thought, "Boy, you really look like a dork." But the weather in San Diego is beautiful, so there's that.

Here's a link to a column we ran by someone advocating Google Glass. His main point: for Glass to be a business hit, it needs to be tied to the workflows employees use to get things done.

re: Google Glass Adds Path, Evernote Voice Commands
Some of the Forrester analysts are pretty confident Google Glass will be a big deal-- as big a developer opportunity as iOS, according to one of their statements. I see the potential for wearable technology to be useful. A smartwatch, for instance, could be paired in interesting ways with other devices and services within an ecosystem. There's also excitement around contextually-aware mobile apps that talk to big data cloud systems on the back end. Wearable devices could obviously factor into this kind of app.

But I'm less convinced of the most bullish expectations, especially when applied to devices worn on the face. Anyone else more sure of Glass's big time potential?

Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
