I Can See Clearly Now

You are getting very creepy.

Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge:

We recently had to ask a rude customer to leave because of their insistence on wearing and operating Google Glasses inside the restaurant. So for the record, here’s Our Official Policy on Google Glass:

We kindly ask our customers to refrain from wearing and operating Google Glasses inside Lost Lake. We also ask that you not videotape anyone using any other sort of technology. If you do wear your Google Glasses inside, or film or photograph people without their permission, you will be asked to stop, or leave. And if we ask you to leave, for God’s sake, don’t start yelling about your “rights”. Just shut up and get out before you make things worse.

Adam Ott:

You lost my business and probably dozens of my friends will be boycotting your establishment! Learn how the technology works! What if I wanted to take a picture of my food…. Idiots!

Dan Parks:

Truth is it is a LOT EASIER to record you with a phone without you knowing, than it is with GLASS. – FOR THE RECORD, I choose NOT to wear MY GLASS, when I am at a restaurant, just so as to not worry people who have not seen Glass before. I wear my Glass on my head. That’s just me.

Mike Hemmes:

What a stupid rule, you can’t hide from tech forever, and it sounds like you have something to hide. Poor service, illegal drug use by patrons? You can always tell who’s doing something wrong by their reaction to a camera. For the record, I have no interest in the Google Glass product.

Jasen Samford:

Granted, Washington law makes it illegal to record people without their consent, but kicking someone out for having the potential to film someone, and not for actually doing it? Isn’t that like accusing someone of rape because he has a penis?

Angel Baker:

People bashing glass users should take a step back and stop. Narcissist? Idiots? How about Futurist? Pioneer? Technophile? I’m a middle income father of 2 who is FASCINATED With scifi, the future, and technology. Almost a transhumanist! I would love to experience an augmented world.

Eric Schiller:

Discriminating against people based on their technology choices is a supreme waste of effort.

I think that a simple “No Douchebags” sign would take care of this, and would eliminate the need to reference Adam etc by name.

“What if I wanted to take a picture of my food?!?!?!”

Oh, the horror! Clearly, this unreasonable ban is a violation of the constitution.

@Dodgerblue: Amen.

Plus, as a member of SAG if you want to photograph me you can pay my day rate.

@Benedick: Is it cheaper than the hourly rate? I’m looking at the ROI here…
