Intuit chairman/Apple board member Bill Campbell praises Google Glass (GOOG)  ... and perhaps hints at a future iWatch (AAPL). Campbell calls Glass a "phenomenal breakthrough," and tells his audience to expect "a lot of things going on with the application of technology to really intimate things ... When you start to think about glasses or watches, they become as intimate as the cell phone." But while the tech world is embracing Glass, a privacy/security backlash is brewing. Vegas casinos have joined a growing list of businesses suggesting Glass will be banned on their premises, due to its built-in camera.

    Of course Campbell would say that.

     

    Google Glass has some valid uses, where hands-free computing provides a productivity or safety advantage: industry, rapid response, medicine.

     

    My guess though is the early adopters will mostly be insensitive, narcissistic idiots and reckless fools.

     

    But I admit the news coverage has been fun. Recommending this one this week:

    It's good to see somebody has the sense to see the problems with these things.

    Drones in the skies, computers in our pockets, rovers on Mars, cameras on our eyes, subs in our oceans, pacers on our hearts, spacecraft catching asteroids,.....

     

    So glad to be alive today, right now, in our world of possibilites.
