An open letter to my homeys in Mountain View: Yo, I'm ready to beta Google Glass

You know who you are: One of you called me a couple years ago, a number of you are in my Google+ Acquaintances Circle, others are regular readers and commenters.

I recently reached outside my longtime Apple fanboy perimeter and brought aboard a Nexus 7 which I'm happily using as an eReader, the best one out there in my opinion.

I'm now ready to reach out again and lasso an early version of Google Glass, with the intention of making it the platform for long-rumored/"real soon now" bookofjoeTV.

Sure, I read recently that Apple's got patents on wearable display technology (below)


but I've actually seen with my own eyes your product — and I want one.

I know I'm not a developer and that your intent is to sell Google Glass to developers next year for around $1,500 a pop.

Why not include a TechnoDolt®™© in the early crowd to get some feedback from hoi polloi, which after all is going to be the bulk of your user base?

I'm too old to wait a couple years till you start to sell them to the Great World.

Let's light this candle.

You say you want to back a start-up YouTube channel?

I'm down wit dat.
