Jason Jones Hilariously Reports on the Discrimination Google Glass Explorers Face Today
For those who may not know, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is a satirical fake-news show that airs nightly in the US on Comedy Central. Jon Stewart’s been hosting it for about 18 years now, and it’s become fairly well known these days for giving more factual information here than actual news networks.
Just before last week ended, Jason Jones – a correspondent on the show – did a segment on Google Glass and the people who wear it, comparing the discrimination they endure to the hardships of the 1960s Civil Rights movements. With all the controversy that surrounds Google Glass today (or even smartphone cameras), sometimes we forget the amount of absurdity that comes with it. Whether it’s getting turnt up on a group of 20-year-old Glass explorers, or going out onto the playground with his own homemade Google Glass, Jason Jones makes us remember that absurdity all over again.
This video also marks the birth of the term “iDouche”.
