Life on the Street

I am in love with google maps new street view feature. It 'ken rocks! And, of course, with it comes the alarms regarding invasion of public privacy.

The Age, isn't sure how to regard this; is it candid camera? Maybe. Google street view really are moments captured in time.

Millions of moments captured for all time.

This is true life. Even if it might be people dealing crack, or sunbathing nude, or showing a little thong, or picking their nose, or scaling a fence. It's life in New York, San Fransisco as it is in the deepest darkest suburbs of Melbourne.

When street view comes to our town, I'm sure we'll see worse - and better!
