Google Street Maps: The A-Z Of Stalking

by | 3rd, June 2007

GOOGLE STreeet Map has been live for only a few days, and people are already getting twitchy.

Ms. Kalin-Casey, who manages an apartment building here with her husband, John Casey, was a bit shaken when she tried a new feature in Google’s map service called Street View. She typed in her address and the screen showed a street-level view of her building. As she zoomed in, she could see Monty, her cat, sitting on a perch in the living room window of her second-floor apartment.

They’re watching. And we are worried:

It’s the combo of Satellite and Street View, and the feeling that Google’s view is getting closer and closer to our personal space.

Should we be worried. And should you really be wearing that jacket with those trousers and smoking..?
