While visiting Toronto on a media blitz last week about being the first Canadian to receive Google Glass for the Explorer program, David Ciccarelli, the CEO of Voices.com, ran into a familiar face from late night television.
In the lobby of his hotel he ran into Paul Shaffer of the Late Show With David Letterman. Immediately recognizing Shaffer, David introduced himself.
Of course, he was wearing the signature Glass at the time which caused an impromptu demonstration for Shaffer.
Though their encounter was brief, the two were able to relate given their Thunder Bay connection and common musical background. There must be something in that Lake Superior drinking water!
If you've had the pleasure of meeting David, you'll know he doesn't exactly need an icebreaker but Glass has proven to be just that. No matter where he is, complete strangers approach him for a demo of Google Glass.
As an ambassador of the product, David has met hosts of interesting people and learns from them everywhere he goes. By embracing the new technology, David has been given the opportunity to help shape its development and make it a positive use in people's lives.
"Being able to share Google Glass with others and to see their first impressions never gets tiring," says David. "I'm grateful to Google for believing in me and for providing this wonderful opportunity to steward Glass while providing feedback on how to make the Google Glass experience even better for future generations."
We look forward to your comments below!
All the best,
