DS 106 Caption Contest

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

Today during my DS106 class, we discussed the importance of privacy and the fine line that some feel Google Maps has crossed. Our professor explained to us how Google Maps images were taken and even showed us a sight called This site displays various images taken by the Google Maps truck and compiles them into one index of many different photos. Our teacher was so enthusiastic about these photos that he decided to have our class add caption to as many photos as we could in about 30 minutes time. My group was made up of Sarah, Chris, Brian, and myself. Here is our submission.
