Google Streetview - the funcrunch files


May. 29th, 2007 11:43 pm Google Streetview

Check this out. That's my office building. Zoom in on the Snapple truck in the driveway; you can just about see the individual flavors advertised. If you know my home address, plug that in too. Pan up and you can see the rotting bicycle cover on our balcony.

Am I the only one who finds this slightly creepy, privacy-wise?

No, that is a little creepy. I feel lucky that my street is more obsucre. There is no 'streetview' on my street.

huh. so far it looks like street view has data for the bay area, new york city, and miami. I wonder why miami and not boston - last I checked google has an office in boston. though I guess it is still small.

According to the announcement in the relevant Google blog (which I just found today), the initial launch includes San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas, Miami, and Denver.
