assuming BC remains something that is stable and trusted

And that's a big assumption. As you probably know, it is possible for the supply of something to go steadily downward and for the value to fall as well -- all that has to happen is for demand to fall faster than supply. The more people mistrust Bitcoin and refuse to use it as a medium of exchange, the lower the value goes.

My friends, it is high time for us to put away partisan bickering and just agree that in this great nation, there is room for many opinions on the question of whether 15 is greater than 5, or less than 5, or equal to 5, or even not a number at all. Perhaps we will never know the answer. Perhaps it is up to each of us to decide for ourselves. So it is important that we in the media give equal time to all perspectives on the matter.

Agreed, but I'd go even further: it has to be available in so many different styles of frames -- all of which are plausibly "ordinary", and *none* of which are branded as "Google Glass" -- that people simply give up on trying to figure out whether any given eyeglass wearer has Google glass built in.

Yes, this would open the doors to adoption by a lot of creeps, but it seems pretty inevitable. And the creeps can film you with hidden cameras right now anyway. :-(
