To wrap up what has turned into a week full of skepticism about technological overexuberance, it seems only fitting to wrap things up with a recent Daily Show clip that takes on the “hate crimes” committed against Google Glass users.

Postscript: as a commenter notes below, due to the vestiges of copyright and regional licensing of the analog era, the clip above can only be viewed in the US. For those outside, a few may have luck trying to find the June 12 show on the following sites:

Canada

United Kingdom

Australia

South Africa
