yeah I'm sure having a film about yourself will gain you comfort when you have to live in hiding in a country that is unlike your 1st, 2nd or 3rd choice of places to live in for the rest of your life.

I'm sure he;ll be in the history books and that too might be a nice to have but he's still living in hiding and that will make life shit so I'd still say that's gaining nothing.

No really aims their mobile camera directly at someone. It'd be awkward holding it that high and using it for starters and it's generally considered rude because the person doesn't know if you're recording them or not and generally sticking anything in someone's face is rude.

I think a lot of people forget Google is still primarily an advertising company (from a profit point of view) and everything they're doing is largely to protect and build that income. Sure they can't give you the facility to record everyone 24 hours a day but if they could they likely would. Their main interest in Glass and the whole wearables thing is to basically tag and monitor you like an animal to help improve their advertising. That should be enough to at least raise some concern but as part of monitoring your all day means monitoring your friends under certain circumstances and unless they're cool with that then it is understand if it annoys them.

How are H1-B visas going to have any effect on the uppoer tier of society? It will just continue the death of the middle class and we'll be left with a society where you either live like a king or in poverty. I'm sure that's what he wants but I can't believe no one wouldn't be able to see through his stupidity.
