If you don't, you're also welcome! The 'have nots' can try to score a chance to use Glass by buying a drink for the 'haves' :) On a more serious note, we will have a screen setup where there will be a demo of a live glass device for all to see, with a chance to checkout the latest apps and hacks. We will also have some of New York's earliest Google Glass users and developers on hand to answer any questions. If anyone wants to present something cool and interesting Glass related, let me know. Hope to see you all there! Thanks, -Amish
