Privacy Invasion Hour

Loads of bits of Birmingham are now live on Google Street View. To see which, go to Google Maps and then – if you see a little yellow man – drag the little yellow man down onto the street to see a 3D photographic view that you can scroll around. Here’s the view from Spaghetti:

This is fascinating, I’ve already looked up my house (can see my car and next door’s cat) and spent a good ten minutes following my drive to town (as ever the Google camera is stuck behind a white van most of the way). The possibilities are endless, it wouldn’t take a clever coder more than a day to program a virtual 11 bus tour…

But for now let’s just see if we can spot odd stuff and things going on that shouldn’t be.

    Yikes – I’ve spotted myself on the flaming thing. At the Tescos on Linden road in Bournville. Attempting to do something unsavoury with the tyre inflating machine.
