Who allowed Google to put my big knickers online?

This week, almost everybody in the UK became unwitting participants in Google's own not-so-little version of Through the Keyhole. Street View provides pavement-level pictures of 22,639 miles of road in 25 cities across Britain. All you need to do is type a road name or postcode into your computer and there it will be on your screen in glorious Technicolor; with the drag of a mouse you can stroll down the street and take a look in all of the front gardens. Frankly, it makes the aerial views on Google Earth look as antiquated as Christopher Columbus's map collection.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have no problem airing your knickers to the neighbors, why is it a big deal when Google images it?

There is and should be an expectation of privacy inside your home, but as any law enforcement expert will tell you, the expectation of privacy does not extend outside the walls. You can be arrested for indecent exposure (whatever the heck that means) while sunbathing nude in your own back yard, as one example.

Now, that being said, it might be a courtesy for Google to run an announcement in the local newspapers when they start scanning a neighborhood so that people may clean up their front yards if they so desire.
