Pierre has a great piece here about the people who are helping to build the street views you see in Google Maps, along with some funky pictures too!

This was a great read. I’m really glad that that Street View hasn’t been blocked and I’m looking forward to seeing it on Google Maps soon. I’ve found it very interesting looking at the US via Street View and it should be even more interesting looking at places I recognise! I know that the Google car definately has been in Manchester where I work.Interesting however that in the article the driver metions lots of people saying their privacy is being invaded...yet the privacy watchdog says no one has complained!! Just shows that really people aren’t that bothered, they just like to cause a fuss.I hope its coming to a screen near me soon!

I saw one months ago in Abington, PA at like 6 in the morning.  Had no idea what it was until I caught up to it and saw the "Google" label.  Took a few months to get up on maps.I didn’t end up in the shot though.  So much for my career as an extra.
