crazy ol' man

Here comes the Google Street View van!

Google Maps has a new feature called Street View where you can place a little yellow man on a street and see a photographic view of the buildings on the street in a virtual panoramic view that can be panned around a full 360 degrees. It is a nifty thingy!

Street view is in its early stages, and as yet there are only street view scenes for San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, Miami and New York. But presumably more cities will be added in the future. Which brings up my question: what would you do if you saw the Google Street View van driving down the street?

Me, I'd make a silly face.
