Google Glass provides us all with a reason to question what it will mean to be interacting with our peers, family and loved ones through the fashion filter of a networked and location aware device. Body worn technologies such as Memoto and Autographer also join the list of data logging devices that we use to monitor and transmit data from our daily activities, either for health awareness, entertainment or myriad of other reasons.We discuss the benefits, risks and perhaps harm that may arise with the rollout of second generation intelligent (smart) wearable technologies in our society.
Dave, Jen, & Jeff catch up on the last two months since ETW209, reveal the uninsurable risks of webcasting, discuss the state of the Rhizomesphere and embracing the messy magic, and share a mini-linkdump.
