(Some Takes on) The First Arrest Caught on Google Glass

(By way of the Atlantic Wire post: What the First Arrest Captured on Google Glass Really Means.)

• It’s like an Instagram video that never ends.

• The indecisive moment.

• If there’s something memorable here, it’s the contrast with those dinosaurs rushing around filming the dust up with their cell phones.

• In light of events this weekend, this Google demo frame published at TechAloud is a little spooky. It demonstrates how Glass can access airline information.

…Forget the first arrest captured by Glass, what about the first plane crash?

• Actually, the window for posts like this is good for about five more minutes. (After that, it’s: get me an editor!)

• Video, feh. Ridicule aside, for a live beta on how Glass handles photos, keep an eye on Koci.

    The value-added social contribution of an effective editor is woefully under-priced by the Invisible Hand. That was 4:25 I’d just as soon have back.

    This reminds me of a guy I worked with, DB. DB was so boring that it took him ten minutes to tell you what happened in the last five minutes.

    Yes the editing is non-existent, but it certainly captures the surrounding environment, it includes all the chaos and the noise as though you’re there. I played it fullscreen on my Retina Macbook Pro and I almost felt like I was there. But where would you edit the video? Where would you make the right cut, how long would it be or would you select and post 1 frame of video?
