Hey, thanks for this, this is awesome. I have been playing a bit with just some basic ruby scripts to shoot cards down to the device and your Sinatra examples on how to handle subscriptions from Glass look really, really helpful.

Happy to help, Ben! If you want to do some more complex stuff I also published a basic Rails scaffold: https://github.com/jonmarkgo/GlassRails

First of all, I think this technology and application is awesome. Glass really is pushing the boundaries of what can be done in the physical world with contact to software and the internet. I just worry that it's approaching communication platforms a bit too swiftly, especially in light of recent controversy regarding usage while driving (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/07/technology/personaltech/go...).

Really hope that some sort of legal precedent is set so that us geeks and developers don't have to worry about distribution if we want to invest time/energy into building apps for Glass.

I'm super excited for glass. it's going to be a game changer in every sense of the way, especially for hands free computing.

Yeah - it's really the first widely available wearable computing platform!

Jon Gottfried does it AGAIN! You are a god among hackers, sir.
