Heck, I haven't even seen a concept drawing of prescription lens Google Glass frames (which, as a prescribed device, would also be immune from a bar owner's rights under US Federal law, and immune from state interference as only the FDA has the right to restrict medical devices) yet.

I would ban them just for the sake of fashion. Google glasses are abysmally ugly and unattractive

While Google Glass has a cool factor, it may make some people on the other side of the lens uncomfortable. They could be concerned about being recorded without some indication that Glass has them in its sights. There is no tiny red LED light flashing when Glass is in recording mode. However, the Glass display is on when recording, and people in close proximity on the other side of the lens can see the tiny reverse image of what's on the display. But the act of recording video or picture taking may not be that obvious from a distance or to the uninitiated. It's clearly less obvious than someone pointing a phone in your direction.

"A red indicator light displays when Google Glass is recording, but otherwise the people around the user have no clue that the Glass user is documenting his or her surroundings."

I've seen first gen Glass in the wild. I can confirm such a red LED exists.

This just cements my feelings then: what's the big problem?

You get 20 minutes max recording, and you can see if you're recording. What's the issue?

EDIT:

Also, the author of that article is just beyond words.

I left the desert this past weekend to attend a wedding in Eagle Rock Saturday night. Sunday morning, recuperating with some friends around a sidewalk cafe table in East Hollywood, I had my first Google Glass sighting ever. They were aboard a nerd-stylish young woman, there with a date, and I felt the skin crawling on the back of my neck until she chose a seat with a telephone pole blocking her hardware's view of my table.

Sorry, but what a moron.

Faith in humanity dwindling.

My thoughts on this are how is this news worthy?
Who cares that a bar has banned the use inside the premises? Many pubs, bars and clubs have policies banning hats, certain clothes, tattoos etc this is no different.
Who cares that someone has Google glass and can record you?

If anyone wants to pull the OK let me follow you and record 24/7, no you can't but you can follow me and record me when I leave my house or work. Why because it happens already through CCTV.
If you are in a supermarket you are being recorded, if you are on a bus you are being recorded, if you are in taxi you are being recorded. If you are anywhere other than your home you could be being recorded.

Omg the horror. Guy X in Rancho Cucamonga recorded your meaningless self on camera picking your nose in traffic. The whole world cares that you did such an atrocity and will ridicule you! I'm not sure whether one should want to suicide over being ridiculed for that, or over caring about such a pathetic innocent act probably just done for a little laugh.
