Street Views!

It goes without saying that the Storefronts Seattle program is all about “street views.”

What was exciting to learn last week, in the course of trying to direct an artist to a project space online, was that Google’s Street Views ™ on the interwebs had finally caught up with “actual street views” in the (literal) public domain.

Check out this little stroll down memory lane, thanks to Google’s plan to photograph every inch of the planet from robot-controlled vans:
