        I may not have thought that Google's "Project Glass" video was terrible as I did if they weren't trying to put us in the body of a smug hipster who plays the ukulele.

        Monsieur Gayno concert? Epic!

          They managed to hit every single cliché except fixies, don't they? I mean, yeah, there are bikes, but we can't be sure they're fixies.

            I like that wondering aloud to your glasses where the music books are is better than asking someone who works in the store. At some point I'm sure that all businesses will be able to fire their employees because sci-fi glasses will have made them obsolete, and if you want to pay for something you just grab the item and walk out the store, and Google Wallet will charge you the purchase price.

              Good grief, Clare Short has just used the word "mongol" on Radio 4 and had to be upbraided. Mind you, Peter Hitchens used the phrase "politically correct". I don't know which is worse

                In Ghost in the Shell most everyone's eyes are cybernetic and jacked into the internet and satellite info, which is great except that that means your enemies can hack into it and deceive you by feeding your eyes false information.

                That's the future too.

                  I want to see a video of someone wearing the Google glasses (it's inevitable that these will be called Google Goggles, isn't it?) muttering "Sarah Connor?" as he walks down the street.

                              Last week, an elderly woman visiting her dying husband in a Niagara Region hospital fell in the hallway on the ward, breaking her hip. Staff nurses told her that they were 'not allowed' to pick her up, and that she should call 911.

                              The ambulance attendants arrived at the ward 1/2 hour later and took her down to emergency and admitted her. That's WTF #1.

                              WTF #2 was yesterday, when they had the hospital president/ administrator/ chief on the phone with the CBC. He said, and I quote, "This is one of those incidents where all the holes in the Swiss cheese lined up in an unfortunate way."

                              I sincerely hope he's writing his CV tomorrow.
                              Re: above.

                              I'm laying in bed last night reading an article on medical errors in the latest Walrus magazine, and I came across this: "James Reason, a British psychologist specializing in human error, has dubbed this "the Swiss cheese model," in which small, individual weaknesses line up like holes in Swiss cheese to create a full system failure."

                              So, that clears that up. Doesn't do much to explain why a hospital administrator would go on-air with a bit of phrasing that absolutely nobody outside of his field could make heads or tails of, though.

                                Must confess I'm as confused by the Swiss cheese analogy as I am by the request for the woman to ring 911.
