For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses. And ass kickings will be encouraged for violators.
A statement on Seattle bar The 5 Point’s Facebook Page • Announcing the dive bar’s ban of Google Glass. Speaking to a local TV station on the ban, the bar’s owner, Dave Meinert, added this: “I’m a thought leader. First you have to understand the culture of the 5 Point, which is a sometimes seedy, maybe notorious place. People want to go there and be not known…and definitely don’t want to be secretly filmed or videotaped and immediately put on the Internet.” It’s admittedly a little cheeky, but partly meant as serious. As long as The 5 Point’s patrons don’t do anything like this, we’re OK with it. (via shortformblog)
