Google’s Street View is now live at Google Maps for five cities (San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas, Denver and Miami) with more cities coming soon.
Street View is a 360-degree street-level photograph that has some people upset about privacy concerns. Here, for example, is a view of a San Francisco restaurant I dined at over the long Memorial Day weekend. .
Google retorts that all photos are taken from public streets, and therefore they are not violating anyone’s privacy. What do you think?
Let me know by responding at Internet Tip of the Week:
See ya on the Net,

#3. Pictures of Cats

Pictures of Cats Printable (** for premium members only)
Sharing. Voting. Tagging. Meowing. It’s Web 2.0 for cat fanciers. Today’s feline photo sites want your participation and your favorite cat pictures and videos.
Cat of the Day
"We know your pet is special, now you can let the whole world know, too." Each day, Cat of the Day selects a cat to be honored on their home page. In addition to a front page photo or video, a discussion thread about each honoree is started in the lively Pet of the Day forum. Other reasons to visit include the daily Pet Poll, the Previous Cats gallery, and, of course, the Nominate Your Pet submission guidelines.
Flickr is an online photo sharing site, categorized with tags and clusters. This collection is photos tagged "cat" and sorted by "interestingness." To explore more feline photos, follow the cat clusters link to find related tags such as whiskers, nose, fur, kitty, kitten, pet and so on. Registration is free, or login with your Yahoo! account. Members can upload their own photos, post comments, and add on-photo notes that display on mouseover.
Infinite Cat Project
This one takes a bit of explaining. It all started with a digital photo of a cat and a rose. Then came a picture of a cat looking at the first photo on a computer monitor. Then another picture of a different cat looking at the second picture on a computer screen, and so on, in infinite recursion. Join the fun by submitting a snapshot of your cat looking at the most recent picture on your computer. Learn how by reading "Da Rules."

"I really liked the ease of using the Tagging Buddy to tag more than one bookmark at a time. It is nice to be able to add to tags later as other search parameters come to mind." Sandy
