Googleville, Population: Not you

Well Google has expanded street view yet again and we still ain’t in it. C’mon google! We’re the 25th most populous city! Pittsburgh? 57th. PROVIDENCE? 128th!

I want to see lobbyists picking their nose on the street! Let’s go!

    Wow. Somewhere, Andy Warhol is crying…even if he is dead.

    I’m amazed that Seattle is also off the list. DC & Seattle are glaring gaps in the Google Street View Program.

    Calm down people. I’ve seen Google Street View cars all over the city for the past few months. DC citizens will get its privacy violated in due time.

    Right, because catch you picking your nose at 14th and L is a violation of privacy…

    As Wayan will be delighted to remind you… the courts have ruled that you have no expectation of privacy while walking down a public street, and thus taking pictures of you is perfectly fine. ;)

    "I’ve seen Google Street View cars all over the city for the past few months. DC citizens will get its privacy violated in due time."

    Are they actually driving the cars into private residences now?

    Deep breaths, DCRes, we got it. I’m sure all of Pittsburgh was offended for the 90 minutes we had their name spelled wrong.

    Man, if I’d spotted this before Tom changed it I’da been tempted to make it PISSBURGH just to spite you, whineypants.

    Though I actually liked Pittsburgh my one visit there, so I probably wouldn’t have. I’d like an excuse to go back and visit the Dirty O again, actually….

    That was indeed a rough loss to the Pats, don’t worry, they’re still 9-4.
