30 Days with Glass

30-days

In my bid to become a Glass Explorer, I wrote a blog post detailing what I would do with Glass if I was invited to the program. I followed up with another post a few weeks later.

In the former post, I mentioned a blog series titled, “30 Days with Glass.” It was to be similar to what Morgan Spurlock did in his TV series, “30 Days” where, as Wikipedia describes it, people “spend 30 days immersing themselves in a particular lifestyle with which they are unfamiliar.”

In Spurlock’s show, rules are set up to keep the victim participant engaged as much as possible in their new lifestyle. In that spirit, I have set the following rules for myself:

  • Wear Glass every waking minute possible (as long as my wife doesn’t complain about it)
  • Talk to at least one person per a day about Glass that has never seen or tried it before
  • If a new person isn’t encountered, go out in public (not including the workplace) and talk to anyone that recognizes Glass
  • Take at least one picture or one video per day with Glass
  • Publish a post once a day about my experience and include at least one observation about Glass

While I am not a stereotypical shower-once-a-month, live-in-my-mother’s-basement, anti-social mobile developer, I am also not a type-A personality. I am not the life of the party and do not like to draw attention to myself. So these next 30 days (and longer) will be an interesting challenge for me. It will force me into conversations I may not otherwise have and meet people I would not normally interact with.

My friend and colleague, a Glass Explorer since Google I/O 2013, has really enjoyed being a Glass Ambassador. I think I will, too. I will enjoy helping non-Glass users understand what it is, how it works, and how it will change lives. While Glass will put me in situations I am not used to, I am looking forward to talking to strangers about the technology.

They adventure will begin within a matter of days. Stay tuned…
