Google Street View, Cardiff, UK

Yesterday I bumped into a Google Street View car while it was capturing images in Cardiff Bay (UK).

Unfortunately I was initially confused at the strange vehicle, only realising the obvious when I saw the big ‘Google’ sign on the side of it. If it was actually capturing data as it passed me I’m going to look like a gormless buffoon.

Update: I was standing here. Bloody brilliant!

Update 2: It appears that the Street View car has been ’round again and my image is no longer available.

Randall Munroe (of xkcd) Visits Google

I absolutely, positively, know I’ve written about this and I would bet my life savings that I posted it, but alas I cannot find it anywhere.

Every-so-slightly delayed (months later!), here’s what happened when Randall Munroe (of xkcd fame) was invited to Google – he also gave an Authors@Google talk.

More Googleplex videos here, including the excellent Tech Talks that I can’t get enough of.
