i went to google maps.
they have a new feature (or so they call it).
it's a detailed image of every address they can get their mitts on.
eventually all addresses.
for example like my old house in scottsdale arizona.
nothin' for nothin' but this is gettin' too googwellian (i.e., orwellian but more googlish).
what possible promising purpose is this property peeping promoting?
not much from what i can see.
even less than twitter, which in my book is bottom drawer usefulness.
on the other hand, it has plenty of promise for those who might want to case a joint without having to leave the comforts of the prison library computer.
now i don't know who is in charge over there at google, but someone needs to stand up and say, enough already! stop it! stop it now!
or at least paste the plea on the in-charge guy's facebook wall.
well fortunately, they haven't done my current address yet.
and since i don't expect the lemmings of googleville to uprise any time soon, i've taken matters into my own hands here at cranelegs pond.
in the spirit of pond fave, henry thoreau, i've mounted a little civil disogooglience.
i'm ready for when they parade past my house with their fancy dan photo equipment.
let's just say it'll be a guaranteed full moon no matter what part of day they show up.
i've mounted a life size photo of my ample pale buttocks in every front window with a little message to boot!
how about them apples?
and let me tell you, the phone has been ringing off the hook ever since.possibly interview requests from cnn.
more likely detective schmoorswick from the local police.
but i don't care.
civil disogooglience has its costs or it wouldn't be what it is ... um ... well ... civil disogooglience!
and i suggest you all do the same, or if you don't have the guts, drop me a line and i'll send you the image to post proudly on your blog or website.
i think that's larry king in my front yard!
man he does look dead.
i better go.
need to powder my pasty butt cheeks in case larry needs some sort of confirmation shot.
death to the sinister googwellian machine!
