One question

Q: Is Google Glass a game changer?

A: It’s a mistake to dismiss technology just because, on your own, you struggle, as I do here, to figure out the right applications of it. It’s conceivable that lots of smart people doing lots of experimentation will determine myriad creative ways to apply this to change how you serve customers, take care of patients, do police work, etc. I view the glasses as less about the technology itself and more about it being a new platform for a new set of applications that have the potential to change things. I’d say we’d all be wise to keep an eye on Google Glass, pun intended.

—John Gallant, chief content officer, IDG Enterprises, on the Enterprise CIO Forum
