Google has started blurring faces from its Street View feature, and let me tell you, it's not a moment too soon. Big Brother (and my actual big brother who is still trying to track me down on the internet) shant have the freedom to log my locations. It's bad enough that cameras are popping up at intersections to "catch red-light-runners."

John Hanke, director of Google Earth and Google Maps said at the Where 2.0 Conference recently that a new algorithm is being used to seek out the faces and blur them automatically and that it, "It does a good job of figuring that out. It uses a variety of technologies to filter," Hanke said, though it's "not perfect."
