Google Glass and the future of wearable computing, with Andrew Keen and Robert Scoble [Video]

Over the next few weeks we’ll be bringing you videos of the keynotes and onstage debates from The Next Web Europe Conference Europe 2013.

To kick things off, here’s a fascinating conversation between two men with very different viewpoints. Andrew Keen has made a name for himself as a real skeptic when it comes to social media and the potential for ‘privacy invasion’ by modern technology. Robert Scoble, on the other hand, is a rampant enthusiast, who as we already know is never going to live another day without a wearable computer on his face.

Keen and Scoble chew over the privacy concerns surrounding Google Glass, whether wearable computing is a real paradigm shift and whether the next step will be to have computers inside your body. A telling moment is when a member of the audience tells Scoble “I don’t want you to look at me with your glasses.”
