Stanford PhD student Andrej Karpathy has mined the list of people notified on Twitter about acceptance to the Glass Explorers project. As of Sunday evening at 6 p.m., he had catalogued 4,238 people who’d been notified. The full list is pretty interesting data – there is decent research potential here on how people envision using a project that they’ve likely only seen through media.
I went through the list and pulled out pitches that were geared around news or journalism (on the production side, not the consumption side). I added the people I found to a curated Twitter list, and you can subscribe to the list at the link. While I will be testing the device out as part of the program, I am very interested to know how other news people – both professionals and educators – are envisioning ways to use it. And it’ll be great to follow their progress.
Next up, I’m going to compile a list of university educators who will be using Glass.
