Google Glass Invite A Friend: Tough Decisions

As you may have heard, Google began giving Gmail-like invites to Google Glass users. In short, when Gmail launched, Google let those with Gmail accounts to invite others to get Gmail (it was a limited beta as well). Now, Google has opened up to a select number of Glass Explorers the ability to invite friends to purchase Google Glass.

Here are some of the posts I spotted on this on Google+.

Here are screen shots of what the invite to invite email looks like and what happens when you click invite a friend:

This is an incredibly tough decision for a Glass Explorer. Who would you invite? A fellow developer? A friend who is not a developer? A family member? Someone who pays you off? ;-)

Google said they have sent out all the invites to invite for now and there may be more in the future.

I suspect Google had some excess Glass devices to sell because some of the #ifihadglass winners probably decided not to go through with the large purchase. So this is their way to get rid of that excess.

It would be interesting to get a pair of glass for a family with a few kids in differing age ranges and with differing interests. Imagine the 'what if glass...' and 'wouldn't it be cool if glass...' inspirations a developer could get from that sort of feedback.
