Pick of the week: “White Men Wearing Google Glass” Tumblr.

I’m not entirely sure what this really says about the future of wearable computing, but it’s certainly a talking point. It also highly amusing to see techworld celebrities like Pete Cashmore (below) and Joshua Topolsky sporting the famous glasses in glamour-shot-like glory. I can’t decide whether we’re going to look back on these with awe or ridicule. Think Game Boy vs. 80’s cellphone. Mix in that it’s turning into a fashion statement and there’s a high probability it will be the latter. I’m hoping for the best.
