So on my way to work the other day, I headed into the garage, and opened the big garage door. I heard a loud zooming sound and a car similar to this zipping out of our cul-du-sac at full speed:It was a Google Street View camera car! Right outside my house! If you haven't heard, Google Street View is a feature of Google Maps and Google Earth that show many streets in the world in 360° panoramic views. To get those pictures, Google cars and vans have cameras on the roof and then drive around streets in cities taking detailed 360° pictures.

One last thought: who wants to see a picture of my dad's big truck in our driveway?
