Journalism is neither licensed nor regulated in the United States. The most that may be said is that some journalists are credentialed. Credentials are what grant access to restricted areas and venues that may not be open to the general public. But there is no government approval of an application to be "licensed" as a journalist, nor is it regulated.

Just hope we do not encourage more people to become self-procalimed journalists, too many street photographers are bad enough ...  Imagine more people start wearing Google glass ...

Not to encourage moving too far OT, but the loss of privacy threat of this sort of technology is to the wearer, not those they may be imaging. We are already imaged countless times a day, by dozens, if not hundreds, of imaging systems, very few of which are integrated in any meaingful fashion.

Google Glass is intended by Google to gather data about the user, just as all their products do. They, in turn, use that data to determine what information is "relevant" for the user.

That, in my opinion, should give everyone pause. But that's another topic.

If you're shy about having your picture taken, be like the Dread Pirate Roberts and wear a mask.

I'm worried where technology may be taking us. It's certainly a two edged sword. On one hand we have instant access to the information we need, on the other the hypnosis of everyone connected is disturbing (and how it is used). As on Star Trek, when the Borg proclaim "You will be assimilated, resistance is futile"
