Google Glass and Libraries: The Beginning of the End or the End of Irrelevance?
SLA Toronto and TSLIS Network are pleased to invite you to participate in the March 2013 edition of Article Club! Join us for a vibrant conversation about the prospect of Google Glass and libraries. Too many of our conversations start inside out – we approach topics from our position and then make them fit our needs. So, is Google Glass the next big thing? Let’s discuss Glass from the Librarian’s context: How do we build business in a world in which in life, and content, can be distilled down to a text recognition earcast? No answers, just ideas.
Be at the Dora on March 26 at 6pm – and let’s find out! Cost is only your own food and beverages. Everyone is welcome.
Here are two blog posts to get the conversation going:

Eric Ravenscraft. “Here’s Why All the Google Glass Skeptics are Wrong (And a Few Ways It Might Fail Anyway).” Available here or at: http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/03/01/heres-why-all-the-google-glass-skeptics-are-wrong-and-a-few-ways-it-might-fail-anyway/
