    Google Glass Developer Hackathon Attendees Being Held to Strict NDA

    While this comes as absolutely no surprise, it's still a bit disappointing. Attendees of the new Google Glass Foundry, (the developer conference/hackathon starting next week), will be held to a very strict NDA (non-disclosure agreement). The will not be able to talk to the media or post publicly about anything they do at the conference. In fact, they are all being issued specific developer Google+ accounts that can be revoked at any time, and are forbidden to post anything about their experience on their personal Google+ accounts.

    Additionally, Google will retain ownership of any media (like pics and video) captured by attendees while using the device. Furthermore, attendees must agree to "waive any moral rights you have and agree not to exercise them."

    While this does not bode well for being able to catch any hint of leaked info about the devices in the coming months, there is one glimmer of hope. Apparently, another part of the agreement says the following,

    Google warns participants not to use Glass while driving, biking, using sharp objects, or playing sports, and to use caution while walking and crossing streets. If they have any concern about the safety of using Glass, Google asks participants to stop using them and return them immediately.
    This implies developers might be able to take their devices home with them after the event, or at least use them outside of the event, during the event. This opens up the tiniest possibility of seeing it used "in the wild" as Google's Co-Founder, Sergei Brin, has been apt to do over the last few months.

    What do you guys think of Google Goggles... huge hit, or a tremendous flop? Most of us at HQ are very excited by the possibilities they provide, especially what they might eventually evolve toward.

    I am reserving my opinion on them for a future date when they actually get put into production.
