East Bay Express: Friday Night PowerPoint Hour

Scott Vermeire is standing on a small stage in a button-down shirt and slacks. There's a strange protrusion jutting out from the rim of his glasses. He introduces himself to the crowd as "Scott Vermeire, Founder and CEO of Thunderbolt Media located in the Mission District of San Francisco," even though I know him as Scott Vermeire, a comedian and artist who hasn't ever had an office job in his life. Behind him is a PowerPoint slide displaying a pair of Google Glasses. He begins pacing as he starts his presentation.

"Everybody knows that the future of technology is all about personalization, right?" Vermeire asks rhetorically. "What if you could take that personalized experience and transition it to your entire life experience?"
