I am normally glad when privacy stories hit the mainstream media, as the general public need to understand the issues. However I was relatively surprised to see this one from the BBC:
German home-owners who have chosen to opt out of Google’s Street View service appear to have become the unsuspecting victims of anti-privacy vandals.
Local media report that homes in Essen, west Germany have been pelted with eggs and had ‘Google’s cool’ notices pinned to their doors.
Privacy is a complex issue at the best of times, but I was not expecting this one!
