Breaking: I Won The Google Glass Explorer Competition #ifihadglass

A few months ago Google launched a contest called #ifihadglass. Millions competed just for the opportunity to preorder a pair for $1500.

Well, I won! Now I have to decide if I can find $1500 to pay for the glasses, and make it to New York for the launch event.

My entry:

#ifihadglass  I would test various ways we can use Glass to save lives on my upcoming charity trips to the third world, and as part of my research as the founder of, a new organization working to open up dialogue on global issues, freeing them from society’s typical constraints.

Apparently they liked the concept of me working to innovate and improve the day to day lives of as many people as possible. And I’ll also be helping the world by reporting on every last detail of the Glass.

Ironically, I never would have known if it weren’t for The App Store Chronicle’s own Google correspondent Previn Edwards, who facebook messaged me that I’d won.
