    Can you give up something you've never had? It quite honestly doesn't bother me that any of the aforementioned companies record 'my' information (broadly speaking, it isn't like they single you out). It's simply a facet of the internet age that I've grown up with. When people complain about facebook and linkedin stalking, or Google's data collection, and onwards I notice that those of us who've grown up with this really don't tend to raise as much of a fuss. I think that is generational (to refer to your other post) not just issue based.

    Technology shouldn't be feared, but it should be used with respect for others. People have a reasonable right to sit down and have dinner in a privater restaurant without being recorded by random strangers without cause.
    Except that many restaurants, gas stations, almost every store...all have security cameras on you anyway. Inside and out. And we all see how confidential those are kept....their videos make the evening news and YouTube all the time.

    That means you have to have Google Glass to get service.

    I think it is the opposite.

    And perhaps you have not done anything...legal or illegal...that would motivate someone, including the police, the govt, your neighbor, someone with a grudge, a co-worker, etc...to seek out and use that information? It doesnt have to have legal consequences, it can lose you your job, it can break up your relationship, it can hurt or shame your family, etc.

    Not to mention the constant reports of people's confidential information being hacked and exposed. Just happened last week here in Seattle...health records at a major hospital stolen. Identity theft is rampant.

    The no shoes no shirt rules are based on public health issues. The only issues brought up so far with regard to the glasses is that people might not want to be recorded, but there are no similar rules against smartphones, so it's clearly not a real concern. It would be fine to have a real discussion over the potential harm of these glasses, but no one has yet to articulate any real problem.

    It certainly can but its something I've always been aware of and I take steps to mitigate the risk. I think most people (especially those my age) do likewise. But it doesn't really inspire a pervasive fear to be quite honest.

    Nope.

    And, of course "facts made up by the government" in this case is laws passed by the democratically elected representatives of the people of this country.
    So? That doesn't change the fact that the premise is wrong.

    You're comparing the choice of wearing video glasses with the non-choice of ethnicity/race? Really? Hyperbole much?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No, I'm not. But the same law that protects one protects the other. People who operate a business like a restaurant or a store are offering a general invitation to the public to come in and do business. The operator cannot revoke that invitation without cause. Neither race nor wearing a pair of classes constitute that cause.
