Google Glass is Orwellian, according to famed American philosopher, scientist, and activist Noam Chomsky.

“I feel we’re moving into a world that was described pretty accurately by one of the founders of Google,” Chomsky said. “Some reporter asked Eric Schmidt if this was an invasion of privacy … and he said, ‘If you’re doing anything that you don’t want to be on the Internet, you shouldn’t be doing it.’”

Chomsky, who also calls Google Glass “a way of destroying people” and “ridiculous,” makes at least one pretty significant mistake, however. He said that Google Glass has a camera and a recorder, “which means that everything that’s going on around you goes up on the Internet.”

Didn’t really consider myself a round-glasses guy but I tried these on this weekend and will probably be getting them.

I feel like the “your mom from the 70’s” glasses are making a comeback.

I have to ask: Who buys the monocle?
Warby Parker: Some people buy it for costumes or a joke, but it’s been interesting, we’ve heard from a number of chefs that buy them because they need help reading recipes in the kitchen. They won’t want to wear reading glasses because they fog up so they just clip it to their chef uniform.  You can put a reading prescription in it. Some people put their distance prescription. It’s been great to see people use them for a functional purpose. You can actually go to [the restaurant] Eleven Madison Park and if you say that you’ve forgotten your glasses, they’ll bring out an oak tray with all of our frames, including a monocle.
