To the other end of the spectrum. I can only imagine is Google Glasses will bring a perfect storm... and I don't mean in a good way. People love their gadgets and pictures are really taking off.

People today are already lacking in etiquette with smart phones. Google Glasses will only make it worse.

"We're going to have to work it out as a society, as we always do," said Noble Ackerson, a member of the Explorers. "When we first had cellphones, there were certain rules that we now take for granted. Like not answering a call during dinner or something like that. Or in a meeting you wouldn't get up and start talking. We have that understanding with cellphones."
