Ever since the announcement of Google’s newest innovation, a wearable computer device called Glass, the online community has been captivated and the stereotypes are already starting to develop. In fact, there is already a Tumblr account dedicated to the most prevalent stereotype of the Google Glass wearing males, titled White Men Wearing Google Glass. The question has been posed time and time again: Is anyone other than white males using Google Glass? Well, the five women Glass Explorers from Nina Hale, Inc. are ready to share their experience.
Search engine marketing agency founder Nina Hale and four female employees are taking New York City by storm Saturday and crashing the dude Glass fest. As part of the Google Glass Explorer program, the group will be heading to Chelsea Market, New York to pick up their Glass and learn how to use them in style.
Google Glass has significant potential to influence our society and our future interactions with technology, but in order for it to best suit the needs of many, there must be diversity in the discussion. Getting women involved in the conversation around Google Glass and its uses is essential to how Glass, and the following technology, is shaped. The Nina Hale, Inc. team will join the Glass discussion in New York and will bring Glass, and their insights into this technology, back to Minnesota.
