Other than the "look at me!" publicity stunt or the "I did it first" bragging right, I'm not sure what the point of this is, other than to prove an incredibly obvious point to a bunch of people that really don't care, because they're going to want their technology fix regardless. You kids and your google glasses.
As things stand now, I'm already quite "behind the times" in ways that are pointed out to me daily, and I see that day coming at me quite fast when I'm completely disconnected from society simply by my own inertia.
I realize the irony of saying this while posting to boing boing. I don't hate the web, but soon I think my life is going to split off from this train path and head towards some kind of a metaphorical cave... if only there was a way to stay connected without staying connected! I guess the answer will be something like very infrequent visits to the computer that's sitting in that dusty corner of my new cave.
