"To that point, Christophe Gevrey, the head of editorial solutions for Thomson Reuters, writes on his own website that this video indicates a “rapidly approaching future where everything can be filmed serendipitously by folks wearing devices like Google Glass without the knowledge of the parties involved." To put it another way, The Atlantic offers a catchier phrase. “If the NSA is big brother, Glassholes are the new little brother.”"What hits me most in this video is the unique “quality” that no-one seems to be aware they are being filmed - no looking into the lens, no sudden shyness when they discover the camera, no-one approaching the person recording. I wonder how long it will be before everyone reacts to a person wearing Google Glass the same way they will react to a person obviously recording with a digital camera or smartphone. How long will this “quality” last?
