A Google Glass user reports being attacked for her technology.
[T]wo women confronted her. Then, a man ripped the Google Glass off of her face.
This might be the prototype for Glass-bashing.
The victim's reaction via social media:
“OMG so you’ll never believe this but… I got verbally and physically assaulted and robbed last night in the city, had things thrown at me because of some *** Google Glass haters …” Slocum wrote on her Facebook page.
More from other people:
[W]itnesses said some people inside the bar got upset about the possibility of being recorded by the glasses. Brian Lester said he watched as a man insulted Slocum, then a man accompanying her retaliated with his fists.
“The crowd was jeering as any last call crowd would do with a fight outside of a bar,” Lester said. “She was running around very excited … and people were telling her, ‘you’re being an *** take those glasses off.”
Threatened by an angry mob - classic Gothic trope.
Note this defensive observation from a participant, about the bar: "it’s not really Google Glass country.” Let's see if we start breaking down into pro- and anti-Glass factions.
Watch for more of this to come.
