Google Streetview to expand outside streets

A job posting on the UK government run website "Directgov Jobs" reveals that Google needs an employee in Bristol who "enjoy[s] riding bicycles but also be aware that some heavy lifting and physical labour will be required."

This is for the google trikes which are already going around the UK capturing even more intimate pictures of the UK. Personally I think this is fantastic news and hopefully this will mean that Google will continue to map all the UK's non car accessible places and landmarks.

The pay for the job is interestingly above minimum wage at £7.00 an hour plus expenses. A rather humourous word of warning is present for potential applicants: "Please be aware you will be driving a vehicle which is strange in appearance in public places and will attract a lot of attention"
