Remember I was excited the other week because my *car* was on Street View?!?  

Well *I AM ON STREET VIEW* !!!!

Was showing the parents street view tonight and went down the street and there I am waiting at the bus stop!!  I would have seen the Google car and not even realised!! Fail!! hehehe

I don't understand how people could be upset about themselves being on Google Earth - I think it's fricken awesome!! :)

You can tell from my face that I was looking at the car as it went by - probably bemused by whatever was attached to it. But I have no memory of it. Very frustrating!

I think it was black with Google Street View stickers all over it and a massive camera rig on the roof.

Hehe - they got pulled over by the police in England!

The one they had in Australia looked more like this - http://www.smh.com.au/news/web/googles-candid-camera-snaps-australia/2007/11/23/1195753275851.html .. although there may have been more than one of them - they drove around an awful lot of Australia!
