Only a nerd like me would be excited about this. Streetview is an awesome feature of Google Maps. It allows you to see 360 pictures of the streets in Google maps. Google has mostly taken pictures of the streets in big cities.
Yesterday, Just as I was arriving home from work there was a car with a fancy camera mounted on a pole that extended high above the roof. On the side of the car was a magnetic Google sign. I recognized it as the car that takes the Streeview pictures. I hope it caught me in my car. I was amazed that Google was already photographing the streets of this relatively small town.
I wonder how long it will take for the pictures to appear. I will check periodically. If there are pictures of my car or houe I will post the link.
