Some part of me believes I should be spooked out that a van from New
Hampshire (Live free or die?) is video taping our streets...

I am not though, since its more fun to look and see the top 15 best
found photos on Google.

The photos come from my cell phone. I saw the van while out riding my
bike to meet up with a friend for lunch. Of course, after looking at
some of the photos found on Google, I am wondering if
Google would consider requests.

I am betting the path around Greenlake is pretty nice this time of
year...

UPDATE Here is a link to the Engadget mention of the Google vans:

UPDATE

Hi Brian, I found your LJ post through boingboing. I don't have a LJ account and didn't see the need to sign up to make a comment. Anyway, I found the SICK device online. It's a "Volume Measurement System". I have no idea what that means, but here it is.

So maybe this vehicle makes the images that appear (for example) in Street View in Google Maps.

When Seattle Street Views becomes available, maybe we should be looking for images of Brian. :)

Ha! I would suspect if I was found it would either be walking to or from the Victrola or driving to Climbing...
Or the airport...
