SAN FRANCISCO -- The woman attacked in a San Francisco bar for wearing Google Glass said she won't be intimidated into taking off the Internet-connected glasses. “I don't want people to see me without Google Glass now,” Sarah Slocum said in an interview. “Now that people know that this happened to me, I don't want them to think I am afraid to wear it. I don't want the people who verbally and physically attacked me and wronged me to have that.” Slocum, 34, who blogs about technology and works in technology marketing and public relations, is among the early testers of the device.

Have you ever seen a music video with a story so compelling, so moving, you don't even really hear the song the first time you see it? That just happened to me with the video to “New York Morning,”  the new song by the British band Elbow. Like a five-minute documentary, it tells the story of Dennis and Lois, two of New York City's biggest music fans. They've seen it all, from the glory days of CBGB and the Ramones to Britpop bands like Happy Mondays (who even wrote a song about them )
