In a response letter to Congressman Joe Barton (R-Texas), co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Privacy Caucus, focusing on new privacy concerns that surround Google Glass users, the team at Mountain View HQ confirmed that the policy will remain the same and will not be amended.
Congress Barton is extremely disappointed with Google’s response, as he feels that the company’s current policy doesn’t address the way new and emerging technologies can affect the “social norms” as it changes the way users interact with the public.
We are not exactly sure how things need to change to protect Google Glass users but we do know that now is the time to hash it all out. With wearable computing becoming a reality in the not too distant future it is essential that theses concerns are addressed by people on both sides of the issue.
