OMGWTFSTALKERANXIETYSTRANGERDANGER!

Google Maps, Street View. So freaky. Maybe you all know about this already but I just heard about it today. It's making my skin crawl. Those are MY cars parked in front of my house!

  1. Oh, but it is incredibly helpful when you're driving through a city looking for, say, a tiny donut shop, and actually have an idea of what you're looking for.

  2. I tried finding a picture some of us could relate to for this post and it was weird because each of the retail or landmarky things I searched didn't have pictures. I was starting to think they only did residential streets!

  3. SF was one of the first cities the first cities w/ Street View, and people have been part-horrified / part-mystified. I've just been disappointed they've not bothered to do all of Oakland yet. Afraid they'll get a homicide in the frame, I guess.

  4. Equally amazing, if not even better is virtual earth by Live Maps. They offer 2D and 3D images,bird's eye views, road and aerial views. It's my favorite map program.
