For those who haven’t been following Matt Drudge’s orgasm of paranoia over Google’s new “Street View” feature, you can get caught up on all the fun with this BoingBoing post: Google Maps is spying on my cat!
Personally, I see this as yet another effort (along with the publication date of Harry Potter 7) to prevent me from passing the bar. Why would I want to review Torts and Contracts when I can spend my time virtually touring the streets of New York, looking at such landmarks as David Letterman’s theater, Rupert Gee’s Hello Deli, my old workplace, my old apartment and nearby Fort Tryon Park, the pet store 33rd & Bird, Central Park, Ground Zero and the World Trade Center PATH Station, Rockefeller Center, and of course my favorite place in New York, St. Patrick’s Cathedral? Etc., etc.
P.S. Take a virtual drive across the Brooklyn Bridge! Just go here and then click the NW arrow repeatedly.
