Invitation from Google to become a Glass Explorer

Earlier this year, Google had launched +Project Glass contest and offered a unique opportunity to experience Google Glass in-person. I entered into the contest as well and my submissions can be found here. Approximately eight thousand winners were selected and I was not one of them.

Recently, I received an email from “Glass Support” with an invitation to become a glass explorer! See email below:

Google Glass Inviatation

I have not yet decided if I will join the program and purchase the Glass Developer Kit which has a price tag of $1500. Trying to figure out business value for Google Glass; from an enterprise IT perspective, I’m not sure how we can use Glass currently. In addition, I don’t think any of our largest partners are working/developing for Glass – example: IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, etc.

Since I am a technology enthusiast, I would like to get Glass for personal use anyway; it would create nice blog posts to share my experiences with especially how wearable tech is transforming user experience.

I would like to hear your opinion – Should I invest in Google Glass? Why or Why Not?

Proud Winner of “Why Perficient?” Contest

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs

Working for Perficient for the past eighteen months and counting, has opened many doors of opportunities for my career and more importantly raised my standard of excellence. I feel that I am still in the early stages of my career since I set foot in the corporate world; however, I believe – how I plan and execute the next five years, will shape the rest of my future.

Perficient had released a “Why Perficient” contest that was open to all employees of the company. This was part of the company’s website project for the careers page. Contestants had to answer questions about work but primarily share their personal stories of why Perficient is a great place to work. Perficient has over 1700 employees and only 10 were chosen. As a winner, our stories were posted on the Perficient career site and we received a small reward.
