Google (GOOG) partners with top Silicon Valley VC firms Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins to launch the Glass Collective, a program providing seed funding to startups developing hardware/software meant to work with Google Glass. "The thesis of Glass is profoundly transformational — to integrate connectivity and information directly into your field of vision and into your normal daily life," writes VC/Netscape co-founder Marc Andreessen, who compares Glass' potential impact to the web browser. The effort comes a month after Google showed off its first Glass apps.
