I think all this out-cry about privacy is goddamn funny. Like with the GoogleEarth program, everyone was sooking because they claimed it made it possible for extremists and the like to plan attacks. Well, actually, no it didn't. Every single image on GE came from publicly available sources, open to anyone. All those blanked-out military sites in India? Just get the pictures directly off the supplier if you want to find out what GoogleEarth's hiding.
And it's the exact same with Street View. It's the same as someone going out with a camera and taking pictures then posting them on the web. What,
no one's ever walked past a porno shop, or worn a bikini?
