Dress good! Google Streetview driving around in Belgium.



Google is planning to roll out Streetview in Belgium (datanews.be). Google has opened a case with the privacy commission of Belgium before proceeding. Google Streetview has its added value but has raised privacy issues (mashable.com) in the past. Quickly going to the mailbox in your pyjamas (first innocent example I could think of) might be capture for all to view. I'm not against the whole thing but it makes you think about how much privacy we have left in todays society.

There are currently Google cars making pictures of Brussels, Antwerp and Liege. So for those people living there, dress nice and be on your best behaviour! ;-)
