Austin now on Google Street map

Oh yes, alerted by Tim Trentham over at Metro-blogging Austin, I thought I'd post to point out that Austin has arrived on Google Streetmap as of yesterday. You can look up most addresses and then look around in the street, zooming in and out, going up and down the street. SPOOKY!!

I just had a quick look at my house, I'd say the pictures were taken on a Tuesday in June 2007. They are still working on the house next door, the tree in my front yard has leefs, the lawn is reasonably green, next door has their bin out. Shame there wasn't a car on the drive as then I could have narrowed it down using my Hertz Rental records.

If you want to take a look, start here - it's the "Greetings from Austin" sign painted on the side of Roadhouse Relics on Annie St, just down the road from me.
