I have my photo a day but no access right now. It should show up on my feed in the morning. Google changed the options for sending video and photos via “share” and I haven’t found the best option yet for media I want but […]


As part of some fresh landscaping, the azalea bush lost about a foot and a half in height.

Sharing a recipe with Google Glass

One of the available categories of Glassware is Glass software that acts as recipe social media, one that allows you and many other people to make a recipe archive. That in itself is not new, but two of those archives, allthecooks and KitchMe also allow you to search and then run through the recipe using Glass, either with screened text instructions, audible instructions, or both. You can also finally share Aunt Susie’s recipe via YouTube, only this time with hands-on shots of your hands while you are making the recipe. In the video below, Jaime Oliver uses Glass while making a salad to give the close-up technique shots. The video itself though, despite the use of a full-length mirror at times, is still heavily produced and edited, with normal back and forth motion between food shots and head/body shots of Oliver, who I just realized, has a super-villlain name (All first name names, even his surname).

Another piece of artifice–there is a real reason why Oliver keeps the eyeshade on while he slices and dices. It was not to lend a hint of danger to the knife work. No, someone must have let hime see himself in that full-length mirror wearing Glass before they started filming and he had a very normal reaction. Here’s my attempt at his interior voice at that moment:

*Alright. here we are. Google Glass–how cool is that? I’lll show them I’m still Mr. Coolness on ice–oh, good one there. Now let’s just check—oh, dear. We can’t have that, can we?* “You there! Bring me the eyeshade.” *Ah, that’s better.*

Yes, Jaime Oliver discovered the transformative power of Glass, at least Glass without prescription frames. Wearing just the apparatus makes anyone look like the king or queen of dork, and he wasn’t having any of that. Here’s the video, which is worth watching for how he makes his own salad dressing using a jam jar:

Day 2 (day 1 for me) at DMAC

This week and next I am blogging from Ohio State University and the Digital Media and Composition Institute. The photo below was taken by one of the participants who tried on my Google Glass for the first time. She scrolled thrown the cards, saw the […]

Fun with flying

I am in transit until further notice. *Update*: Flight was supposed to be from 4:35 to 9:25PM. I ended up leaving ground at Springfield at 7:30 or so and got to O’Hare at 9:30. I spent the night at O’Hare, but couldn’t sleep.

Cute Glass Tricks

I was in a meeting today, something very common in the last few weeks of the semester, even when on sabbatical. In it, I thought of taking notes, something I’m not only bad at, but tend to lose or not find when I need the notes later. Instead, I took a photo of the screen using Glass. I’ve tried that before with my iPhone, but the screen was not readable. This time it is, and I can send the photo to Evernote still using Glass in order to keep the photos sorted into projects.


It’s that easy

I was on campus today for a meeting with a thesis student. Here is a photo I took with Glass on my way to Siceluff. The posters are on Cheek Hall, which is joined to Siceluff by the walkway seen in the upper right. This […]
