Crowd funding Google Glass
I got this posted on Facebook and Google+ and Twitter, but figured I better add it here on the blog. I've received an invite to be an "Explorer" in the Google Glass beta program. That's the good news. The bad news is this means I need to come up with the $1,500 needed to purchase the device.
Since Google in their own post about Glass myths says some people have used crowd funding to pay for Glass, I thought I might give it a try. In fact, it was that bit of information that got me to sign up for Google Glass. I thought I might have a few months before getting accepted (if I even got accepted). Instead, it was a few days.
To try to make it happen, I decided to setup a project on Indiegogo. Hopefully enough people will decide to help make this happen as I really would like to take advantage of the opportunity.
