!k me - it's work

Google Street View is now in the UK. See BBC news for a write-up and the list of cities covered so far. Here's where I work:

No kidding. These photos are very recent, if you click the link and spin round 180° some of that scaffolding is still there. If you zoom out - well I'm not sure who is in the car parked on double yellows, and the image is Google distorted. But if I wanted to (I don't) I bet I could find out. Does this raise privacy problems? You bet it does.

A few steps East and South shows the Civic hall clock. Ten minutes later and I probably would be on the street below.

Though time is relative as Leeds Town Hall clock clearly demonstrates.
