The title of this blog post refers to the captivating novel, Daemon by Daniel Suarez which you can get on Amazon and  Audible, if you are lazy and prefer being read to. It is a worth read for all. The book is so good, I think, that Google went and decided that with their bottomless resources to try and create the Dark Net – or something akin to it.

The official name of the project is simply Project Glass and at the moment, includes of a few photos, a completely blank Google+ page, and a concept video that is still quite a way from reality.
