Eric Schmidt: Google Glass Critics "Afraid of Change," Society Will Adapt

curtwoodward (2147628) writes "Eric Schmidt came to Harvard this week to discuss his new book, but many students really wanted to know more about the implications for privacy and social interaction once Google Glass starts hitting the market. Schmidt cautioned against jumping to the worst conclusions, saying that society always tends to adapt to new technologies---and he's hoping for etiquette rather than government regulation. Of course, that's what you would say if you used to run a company that has been fined and paid settlements to regulators for the way it scoops up data and tracks users. But Schmidt also doesn't have much patience for critics: "Criticisms are inevitably from people who are afraid of change, or who have not figured out that there will be an adaptation of society.""
