From the Department of Paranoid Officialdom:
The NYT reports: Google Earth Makes Some Officials Nervous. Apparently, Microsoft and Google vans have been scouring NYC for their street view products, and this has been making low-level officials nervous.
This morning, the state comptroller, Thomas P. DiNapoli, held a news conference in Midtown Manhattan to urge Internet-based mapping services to consult with law enforcement authorities — and well, to just be responsible — in deciding what to put on the Web. Citing Google Earth among other services, he said he was worried that too much information might compromise counterterrorism efforts.
Right. Because terrorists are too stupid to drive cars and take pictures themselves. (Some of the comments attached to the article are priceless.)
