You might watch the news #ifihadglass

As more news organizations give credibility to ireporters and instabloggers, I think the idea of Google Glass for news sounds more compelling than ever.

Why wait for the 6 p.m. news when you could watch an event in real time?  I see a lot of journalists using a ton of services out there, but as far as I’m concerned, few can beat YouTube or the powerful Google search.

Coast Guard glass

The Coast Guard always tapes a rescue. What if we could give them Glass?

My #ifihadglass submission was simple.  If I had glass, I would show the world what I’m seeing as I’m reporting it.  It sure beats putting a laptop on a news car and hoping for a wifi signal.

Gas Leak Hangout

We held a hangout during a gas leak, a school lockdown and a traffic shutdown.

Now the question is what kind of news do you want to see?  It opens the door for content we may not have made time for during a traditional newscast.

I also think it will help with the process of news gathering, but that is another post for another time.

About Michelle Li

My first professional love is journalism. I am a TV news anchor who likes to talk and write about things that should matter. I am married to a guy named Jim and have two rottweiler girls that would rather eat your shoes than your face. I'm also going through an extreme couponing phase and will likely share my adoption stories here, too.
