Brandyn White’s adventures hacking on Google Glass began not in a fancy Silicon Valley lab, but in a St. Petersburg, Fla., car repair shop in the mid-1990s.

His dad gave him a Tandy personal computer. The classic DOS desktop tower, “which was old then,” White said with a laugh, was part of a payment his dad had received for fixing a customer’s car. Limited in what he could do with the Tandy, White soon picked up a programming book from his school library. He was 10.

By the time he was a teenager, White had started a company called ConnerSoftware, which involved him “knocking off” — his words — other software and giving it away for free.
