    Two tech titans recently came together for a practically secret meeting, but the details of that meeting turned out to be far more innocent and intriguing than you might surmise. Recently, Mark Zuckerberg, cofounder of Facebook, and Sergei Brin, cofounder of Google, had just such a meeting. Very few in the press where allowed to attend (and no pics were taken), not because it was some secret backroom deal, but because it was for far more personal reasons than you might guess. Apparently, Mark Zuckerberg may be one of the biggest fans on the planet for Google's new invention, Google Glass. This meeting was a personal demo of the product by Sergei Brin.

    It turns out both of these tech-lords are backers of "Breakthrough Prize For Life Sciences," and they took their shared location (University of California, San Francisco’s Mission Bay medical campus) at the event as an opportunity for Mr. Brin to show off Google Glass to Mr. Zuckerberg. It was also somewhat of an informal business meeting in a back corner of UCSF’s Genentech Hall, so Zuckerberg could talk to Brin about the highly anticipated augmented reality spectacles. It's not an official collaboration between the two companies, but is more of an informal feedback opportunity between two super-geeks who love technology. Here are a few quotes (some of them are out of order) from the Forbes article detailing this meeting,

    Not supposed to be a thing? Indeed... when two of the globe's most famous technology pioneers come together with a shared interest, of course it will become "a thing."
