Meetup CEO Scott Heiferman wants to punch someone in the face wearing Google Glass. It’s not entirely clear whether that means he wants to punch someone wearing Google Glass in the face or if he wants to punch someone in the face while wearing Google Glass.

Business Insider put out this video of him talking about the device:

Heiferman says, “Google Glass? Well, I’m definitely going to punch someone in the face wearing a Google Glasses. I’ve never punched anyone in the face in my life. I’m generally a peaceful guy. If you’ve ever seen a three-year-old using an iPad, you’ll know why I smashed an iPad with a sledgehammer. It’s so damn compelling, and that has implications.”

He continues, “We’re going from ten to fifteen seconds to get my phone, you know, turn it on, open Facebook, and see something interesting…well now, with Google Glass, and the watch, we’ve gone from like ten to fifteen seconds to interestingness down to like three to five seconds to interestingness, and now once it’s on my wrist, and like you know, plastered on my eyeballs, that’s like down to one second to interestingness.”

“It basically means that you’re gonna be an asshole,” he says. “it’s easier and easier for you to ignore real people around you, and sometimes that’s totally fine, but on this relentless pursuit – the train is barreling down, and saying, distraction is just a fact of life. We have to consider what it means.”

He concludes, “And I’m not saying like, ‘Let’s sit back and ponder the nature of culture, and the future of society,’ in that way. I’m just saying, you gotta punch someone in the face wearing Google Glasses.”

Business Insider itself says he wants “to punch anyone wearing Google Glass in the face.” That would certainly be in line with his “assholes” comment. Still, whenever he says it in the interview, the wording sounds more like he wants to punch someone in the face while wearing Google Glass.

“Compelling…Interestingness…”

“I’m definitely going to punch someone in the face wearing a Google Glasses…I’m just saying, you gotta punch someone in the face wearing Google Glasses.”

Either way, he’s definitely going to punch someone in the face, and Google Glass will be involved.

    By all means, please punch me in the face when I get mine, Mr. CEO Man. The amount of money I will sue you for, especially when I show the judge this quote proving premeditation will make me a very rich man.
