Google's StreetView Fans?

Most of us in our right minds aren't big fans of Google StreetView -- the service where Google vans photograph the outside of our domiciles (they would surely go inside if they could) and post it for the whole world to see, whether we are sunbathing in the nude or not.

In Germany you can opt-out. Your house is still there, but is blurred out. Apparently not all Teutons are against StreetView like I am. It seems some have been going around egging homes whose owners opted out. This all happened Saturday, Nov 20. The dumb slobs missed Halloween by three weeks!

What is your view of StreetView? Send thoughts and even links to your home if you're particularly proud to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
