Video Emerges of Google Glass "Assault," Proving Google Glass is Completely Useless

Yesterday’s big “anti-tech hate crime” hullabaloo is quickly coming to a close, as eyewitness accounts of the alleged “assault” at Molotov’s cast serious doubt on “I Love Social Media, Inc.” founder Sarah Slocum’s story.  Now she’s released video of the incident, which she insinuates is proof of the attack.

Her description of the video:

This is the first video that I got on Google Glass at Molotov bar on Haight Street after being verbally accosted and flicked off by the Asian looking girl, I turned on the video, and after I told them I was doing so they got pissed off and came after me. Unfortunately, I had not extended the video so it cuts out after 10 seconds. Here you can see them - two people, a male and a female - trying to block the camera. The guy waving his hands in my face here later rips the Google Glasses off my face and ran out of the bar. #throughglass

Of course, the video is only 9 seconds long—and proves absolutely nothing.  But alas, there it is.

UA tipster Jeff Cleary put it best: “As this video clearly shows, Google Glass is completely useless.”  Amen.

Whose town?

Fairfield’s!!!!

“Asian looking girl”? Or just the only girl in the video.

I can’t stand it when people say “flicked off” – it’s like nails on a chalkboard to me. It’s flipped. You were flipped off. GAH.

If she had used a hand held a camera and started filming people and continued over their obvious and apparent vocal objections would we even be having this conversation? 

Hell if she’d just read the room and saw that she was making people uncomfortable this would be a non issue. 

Shorter Slocum: my being an asshole led to me being accosted.

I wonder why she hasn’t posted the rest of the video. KRON 4 has a much longer clip in their story.

Does “Asian looking girl”, mean that the person wasn’t actually Asian, but just looked like one?

I don’t know who is right in all of this (probably no one), but Sarah Slocum is coming off like a Grade A doofus, at best. 

Can you label your links? I prefer to know what I may or may not be clicking on.

Thanks

It is a short clip from the 1996 American dark comedy film, “The Cable Guy” and is relevant to the “Asian” discussion.

Thanks for the label. Haven’t seen the movie though.

So she decided to start filming them not only after they told her not to, but *because* they told her not to?

ah ha ha ha! i love that asian looking girl!
