Google Street View

Google sure are getting about.

I live in a very small market town in the Midlands in England, but have just been “Street Viewed” by one of their cars:


Apparently, it takes several months before street view pictures appear on Google Maps, and part of the process is ensuring their face blurring technology has worked (I feel I’ve given them a headstart already this morning), but it will be interesting to see if a blurred faced bloke in scruffy jeans and a scruffier fleece is leaning casually against my car when they do.

Update 19.03.09 – Looks like even the BBC have picked up on it (no, not me being ‘Street Viewed’, but rather Google’s Street View hitting the UK. )
