About a year ago, I had one of those experiences where something bad turned into something unexpected and good. I was at Google I/O, an annual developers conference hosted by Google in San Francisco, enjoying the Keynote. The Keynote is the kick-off to this annual event, spans three hours, and usually involves product announcements. In 2012 the star of the show was Google Glass–a new futuristic wearable computing device, a product out of X labs, the secret R&D facility working on self driving cars and other moonshots.
