Critics have expressed concern of their privacy being violated with the glasses recording their every move without their consent.
As privacy experts nearly predicted, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened: A woman was reportedly attacked in San Francisco Friday night for wearing Google Glass in a bar.
According to CBS, tech writer Sarah Slocum was showing a friend how to use the glasses-mounted computer at the popular San Francisco dive bar Molotov’s. Slocum was reportedly recording scenes from the bar when she was approached by two women and a man who started an altercation and pulled the glasses from her face. Slocum said she recovered the glasses, but her purse and phone were stolen.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, someone told Slocum that she and her tech friends were “destroying the city.”
Slocum recounted the incident on her Facebook page.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
