Caught by the Googlies

Google Street Map Car - Moseley, Birmingham UK
Google’s Street View is hitting the UK at the moment, and people who don’t understand are getting all worked up. Taking photos in public is completely legal, and if people are really worried about burglars suddenly “casing the joint” over the web then I’d respectfully suggest that there were perhaps other things for them to worry about. At a rough guess, American being the litigious society it is, if there were any real problems we’d have seen a rash of legal cases by now.

For those of us of a more geeky bent, it’s very exciting — I was inordinately happy to spot the car earlier today. The Register is mapping sightings on Google Maps, where else?
