The Google Glass team made an announcement today that the Google Glass Explorer Program will be coming to an end within the next few days. This news does not come as a surprise to me as the Google has set the expectation from day one that the Glass Explorer program was essentially a public beta. As with all beta programs, they must come to an end. The news is very bittersweet to me as I was one of the first 8,000 Google Glass Explorers to get their hands on Google Glass nearly a year and a half ago.
Well… I was given an awesome gift this morning by a close friend of mine who worked with an amazing artist to create a custom #GlassFamily portrait for Google Plus. I can sum it up in one word… AWESOME!
These photos have gone viral in the Google Glass Explorer Community and new explorers are being graced with their unique likeness on a daily basis. I have no idea how Virginia Poltrack has the time to make all of these.
