Ghost on the Internet

Google Maps has introduced its 360 degree street view function. Not sure when it debuted, but the Google car definitely drove over the 35W bridge prior to collapse. The bridge is alive and well on Google Maps’ street view. Much like it is in the normal satellite view.

Also, my car has now been immortalized in Google Maps. Check out your address!

Dare I say: Google Maps is the best, true that, Double True

(side note- the SNL Digital Short Lazy Sunday debuted two years ago yesterday.)

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is showing at The Heights — that gives us a pretty go picture of when the photos were taken.

    It is kinda creepy to look at it knowing it’s gone now.

    The first thing I did was to look up my old address and see if my car was parked on the street. It wasn’t.

    Aaron Landry has an interesting post about this as well. He points out that pictures on top of the bridge were taken, “…probably only days before it collapsed. Rows of news vans line Main Street SE after the collapse.”
