Google street view comes to Warwick?

IMagine my surprise when I found out that no, my parents street is not on google streetview and no, neither is Warwick Medical School.


I wasn't surprised to hear the reports on BBC about infringement of peoples privacy, e.g. being snapped coming out of a sex shop in Soho probably wouldn't go down too well.

Nevertheless, plaudits to Google for having the balls for coming up with such a comprehensive package.

And how many advertisers are fitted onto the main page?

Count them

1. Tate

2. Fancy a pint? (encouraging underage drinking?)

3. Visit Britain ( fair enough)

4. Mayor of London (Boris do you have nothing better to spent the capitals hard earned cash on? Better save some for Barclay's)

5. Find a Property (I guess they need all the help they can get in these times, maybe they should ask Boris)

Wait till they come to Warwick...

    I’ve been photographed outside an Ann Summers shop that was bad enough.

    I hope no-one photographed me coming out of the last Newcastle match I’m not sure I can stand the shame….

  3. Well, it did come to Warwick at your time of writing. As you may be aware, street view went live on 11 March 2010 for version 2 at 96% of the UK – see the gate house sign, it reads ‘Tues 24 March…The Young Victoria’ my guess that was 2009?
