i was just there looking at that same building yesterday ... can't quite read the sign on it.   One wonders how they do it ... do they drive around with cameras on the top of a google car?  

Anyway it didn't help me yesterday ... i was trying to see what Tremont Street in Boston looked like today ... too bad they haven't driven Boston yet.   The most useful map i could find was at WardMap.com which helped me interpert the picture in 7416 giving me door by door along the street in 1883 ... i wonder if D.Russell was related to CFR.   Hopefully Google will save the drive by pictures in time batches so that eventually we can closer to Digital Historical Zoom.   Btw did you see how close they drove to your house in Denver?

Can see my corner gas station about 2 blocks away - not my street.  The label on the building at PJ2 is Developing Environments

i used to live behind those windows in a one room apt ... now i want to zoom it back to 1972.

Seth says
And the old flea bag hotel at 6th and Howard that i ended up at  ~1963 when i ran away from home is still there.   I was paying $6/week.  

maybe i shoould make a map of all the places i live in San Francisco ... then when im famous they can make them historical landmarks.


Seth says
Apparently whatever you do sombody will find a problem with it

Mark de LA says
Yep, that is how I found out about the feature with the headlines on drudge about seeing people's faces & license plates.  It's more evidence which supports my zen ideas that no matter what you create the opposite is created at the same time. We don't know how often these pictures are created, though. As with the cameras on every street corner in some areas like Boulder, Colorado there is no privacy in public!

Seth says
Street view is actually becomming quite a pass time .  I predict that what will happen is that there will be this whole thing about finding out when and where the van will be passing and promoting in front of the camera so watch the new media develop.

Mark de LA says
Speaking of negatives this is a bummer - helps terrorists!

... or there is no such thing in the world as a one sided coin .

Maybe  a möbius coin somewhere – will have to draw one.
it does seem that things have an inside and an outside … at least my physical body has an inside and and outside … it can be experienced subjectively only by me … and objectively by anyone in its prescience.  it is not much of a logical leap to assume that all things have that same characteristic.
