The Eyes in the Skies Are Upon You

A friend of mine (thanks Alec!) notified me of a site, Windows Live Local, that gives quite a close-up ariel view of people’s homes, in addition to public areas, in growing numbers of locations. 

I have few problems with surveillance in public areas…after all, they are public, and they have led to the capture of some very heinous criminals. 

However, peering into backyards and over privacy fences and projecting the images out for the world to see on the Internet is another issue altogether…a huge invasion of privacy, but a sad reality of the largely unregulated-image-use technology that floats everywhere above us.
