Messages from the air

Have you seen Google Sightseeing yet?  Its a fascinating site – its a picture blog of interesting places that have appeared on the satellite pictures of google earth.

What interests me the most though, are the messages viewable from the air, like this or this or this.

Of course, the privacy issues associated with these sites just doesn’t bear thinking about.  Is it so different to CCTV?  Hmm, there’s a debate to be had maybe.  Also these people are out in public anyway, but of course, like many things, the Internet can amplify the situation and things are extrapolated to the extremes.

Anyway, privacy aside (and it is a big aside of course), google sightseeing is good fun.
