Google Glasses Stunt Redux

Yesterday Google introduced the crowd at Google I/O to Google Glass by having people wearing the glasses jumping from a plane, biking across the roof of Moscone Conference, and rappelling down the side of the building.  Well in the words of S.R. Hadden from the movie Contact:

First rule in spending: why build one when you can have two at twice the price?

So today we were treated to a second attempt at the stunt. While the crowd in the convention center may have been rolling their eyes at seeing the stunt again, I was in a very different location. By chance I was walking back from a meeting at the StumbleUpon offices when I noticed the same blimp hovering above Moscone. A minute later the sky divers jumped and by the time I made it back to the convention center I watched two people rappel down the side of the building. Here is what the stunt looked like from outside the convention center.

It was a lot of fun to watch.  Also worth mentioning today Google opened up the goodie bag again today and gave everyone a Chromebox.
