Google Streetview: San Diego State University

google person for free

A pedicab-like trike, mounted with an 8-foot-high camera has been rolling around the pedestrian walkways of the SDSU to collect panoramic images of the campus for Google Maps’ Street View feature, which gives users detailed, street-level views of map locations over the Internet.

The 250-pound vehicle, which resembles the pedicabs that carry tourists around Philadelphia and other cities, has the cyclist pumping the pedals up front, with the camera mounted on a tower in the back. On the rear is a red generator along with a large white chest that looks like it might dispense ice cream but actually contains the computer recording the digital images.

Peet the pink elephant probably sounds like a really dumb title. But there’s a reason I chose it and it has to do with the way self-pronounced search engine marketing experts market their services and pretend they pull some magic out of their hats. I thought Peet had died a few years ago but while doing some basic optimization recently I came across some of his foot steps (they were imprinted in the face of a friend of mine).

The rest of the Peet the Pink Elephant story will follow when Google tells me to finish it 😉
