Earlier this week I received an invite from Danny Brown to join him on Glass. Being perpetually curious about tech and web applications I headed over and signed up. The last few days the application has really piqued my interest because it creates a new community layer over the internet unlike anything that has been available previously. It achieves this by combining side-wiki like features with a virtual social network. It also allows comments and conversations to occur on any website but privately with the connections of your choice or publicly with any Glass users. It caps all that off with a community streaming function bringing your Glass, Facebook and Twitter content that contain links into one place.
Reasons Glass is usefull
- Transcends the boundaries of social networks and websites
- Allows private or public conversations about any site or page
- Creates a community stream of your Glass, Facebook and Twitter
- Potential to integrate any social network, blog comment systems
- Enables you to share any website or page via Twitter, Facebook and Email
