My +Project Glass Entry to be submitted tomorrow 2/27/2013

#GoogleGlass is one of the best inventions of the Year 2012, part of an elite group that also includes Element 113, Tesla Model S, Switchblade Drone, and Indoor clouds to name a few.

+Project Glass was first introduced in 2012 and gained a lot of hype with the commercial Promo Video they released. This brought about a lot of buzz in the tech world and social media. Google, being one of the smartest and innovative enterprises of our century, it has offered an exclusive opportunity to the 50 United States and District of Columbia to become a #Glass Explorer. A unique opportunity to experience Google Glass in-person in New York, San Fransisco, or Los Angeles. The only catch to the opportunity is that Explorers will each need to pre-order a Glass Explorer Edition for $1500 plus tax.

The contest started on February 20, 2013 and ends February 27, 2013. In order for you to apply/enter to win, you need to:

Using Google+ or Twitter, tell us what you would do if you had Glass, starting with the hashtag #ifihadglass.”

After thinking about it for several days, I’ll be posting my +Project Glass entry tomorrow 2/27 – Focus is #originality and #creativity –

My first impression doubted the email at face value asking is this real or not? Out of 200 million members, including individuals who are CEO’s, Presidents, and Philanthropists of our society – how did I make it to the top 5% percent? I do have an “All-Star” profile strength and over 800+ connections – being in the top 5%in 2012 is still too good to be true.

When I started to calculate what 5% really meant, out of 200 Million members – 5 percent is 10 Million members. That means that I am 1 of the 10 MILLION people who received this congratulations email. This was more of a realistic figure and being One out of Ten Million is really not a big deal.
