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:

StreetViewCar

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. )
