There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as discovering a new lunch restaurant that’s not only close to your work but incredibly satisfying. The search for the lunch restaurant can pull coworkers apart, send one driving aimlessly and hungrily for stretches of time, and clog your internet cache with Yelp reviews. Last month I took a friend’s suggestion to meet at Chicken Maison in Redondo Beach. I have already been back three times.

Google Glass was my latest project and while I think the device is evolutionary (and pretty entertaining) ultimately it's got a long way to go before it becomes part of my every day life in real estate.
The most obvious use for someone in my profession is to use Google Glass to provide a live showing of a property with a busy or out-of-state client which is what I did.
This required a bit of set up. My client had to setup a Google or Gmail account, we had to +1 each other, and I had to add her as one of my coveted 10 "shared contacts" (currently Glass only allows you to specify up to 10 people who are accessible from the…
