The Tech Generation: Editor’s Letter, September 2014

At the end of July, I joined some friends at a sidewalk table in Manhattan’s Union Square, where we attempted to recover from the events of New York City’s hectic-as-ever jewelry week. (To see what you might have missed, check out this issue’s party-centric Social Diary.)As we sat there admiring the crowded nighttime scene, a stick-thin young woman wearing a very short pair of pleated yellow shorts stood on the corner, spinning in a slow circle, seemingly oblivious to the people walking around her.We couldn’t help but laugh—she looked so darn awkward rotating in circles right there in front of us. When we realized she was wearing Google Glass, we laughed even harder. Wearable tech may indeed be the new black, but there’s still a limit to what looks good, what looks bad, and what looks plain ol’ dorky.Courtesy of Rio Tinto and MVS StudioIn the WJA photo booth with JCK Events
