"Paul Levinson's It's Real Life is a page-turning exploration into that multiverse known as rock and roll. But it is much more than a marvelous adventure narrated by a master storyteller...it is also an exquisite meditation on the very nature of alternate history." -- Jack Dann, The Fiction Writer's Guide to Alternate History

Tetrad on Eyeglasses Flipping into Google Glass

I was just Skype interviewed by Nick Kyrouac at the University of Arkansas for a documentary he's doing as a Senior Project.   We talked about my work with Marshall McLuhan, among other things, and I came up with a tetrad for eyeglasses flipping into Google Glass:

Eyeglasses enhance seeing the world around you.

Eyeglasses obsolesce poor vision.

Eyeglasses retrieve 20/20 vision.

Eyeglasses flip into Google Glass, or literally seeing not just the world around you but anywhere and everywhere in the world.

For more on the tetrad ...
