Red Flags About Google Glass Hyperventilation

It’s one of the defining technologies of our day, already, even though it’s not even really released. Everybody has a question or a complaint about Google Glass.

Sage observer Larry Downes argues in Harvard Business Review that there is no stopping this tech. But he makes note of calls to regulate it, much like governments that initially insisted someone walk in front of early cars carrying a red flag to warn horse-riders of the oncoming danger. Congress and governments generally seem to have no clue this time, either. Google, meanwhile, is saying nothing.
