    Default A woman was assaulted and robbbed at a bar for wearing Google Glass

    A woman in San Francisco made a complaint that she was assaulted by some Google glass haters at Molotov bar. The situation escalated to a point where she was verbally and physically assaulted, then robbed.




    Sarah Slocum was flaunting her Google glass to her friends while she was around the bar, when few people didn't like when they saw the Google glass. who is a tech blogger said,"OMG so you'll never believe this but... I got verbally and physically assaulted and robbed last night in the city, had things thrown at me because some *** Google Glass haters."

    It was assumed that they hated the device as it was a privacy hazard. "I think everybody was just upset that she would be recording outside of a bar this late with obvious embarrassing behavior going on," said Brian Lester who was one of the patrons of at the bar who told the local CBS News. "And just rather insulted that someone thinks it's okay to record them the entire time they're in public."

    Should the presence of Google glass provoke someone to be hostile? It depends more on the place and the individuals. Last year, a network engineer was asked to remove his Google glass at a 24-hour diner in Seattle. Another case was more serious as a a man was removed and from a theater because of his Google glass, was detained by the MPAA and FBI and had to go through a harsh interrogation. But in any case, one should resort to assault and robbery.

    It is therefore best if one follows the 'Google Glass Etiquette'. Afterall, its important not to be a 'glasshole'.

    Personally I kind of agree with the idiots that robbed her. I don't think it is acceptable to record everything in public because everything is not always Public! Just because it happens outside the home does not mean it should be subjected to audio, still shots or video recordings. She may or may not have been recording at the time but how would you know this? Because someone says "Its off right now"? I call BS. I would say its off too in an attempt to defuse the situation. Doesn't mean I actually turned it off.

    The actions and behavior that are acceptable in one location, such as a bar/night club are not socially acceptable elsewhere. So when a video surfaces of your boss, a CEO, a lawyer or even a regular person doing things at are the "Norm" in a bar/nightclub, it can cause unrepairable harm to that persons social, professional and personal life. The fact is short clips do not depict actual events and leaves context on the curb. I can show you a short video that looks like your girlfriend is trying to talk to another man. Doesn't mean that what really happened. She could have been trying to get directions or polity telling him to commit suicide.

    Walking around recording what you think you see captures everything that you don't see as well. All that stuff in the background are other peoples life. Lives that should not be shared on Facebook, Youtube and Twitter as a Google experiment.

    no they should not have robbed the woman. That's dumb. However we have little recourse when put in this position. All we can do at the moment is turn our backs, put our heads down and walk outside of the camera view.
