Big Data and Wearable Computing spark legal issues

Today’s Slaw post:

I think we are going to see over the next while some interesting technical developments with some equally interesting legal issues to ponder around big data and wearable computing.

One of the things I like about being an IT lawyer is that I get to see interesting new technology and businesses, and with any luck do their legal work.

Earlier this morning I was at a business that has some cool technology around social media and big data.  It has the ability to turn into a 5 minute project what can now take months to do manually, if you can do it at all.

Later today I’m going to try out a Google Glass owned by someone who is exploring possible business models based on its use.

And on a related note, it was announced yesterday that the Pebble watch will be available at Best Buy in August – but unfortunately not in Canada.
