The potential for it is huge. Especially when you think about how it will eventually link up with other Google services, or how whole communities can be built around it. I've heard people talking about building a system over the top of it, you'll be able to click on a city or even a neighbourhood within a city - get the news for the day from there, see a list of people from there online to chat, see listings of what is going on there, history of the place, 'guided' tours etc. Added to that you could click and get a listing of people with a little profile on them, if you find someone who's life you think sounds interesting or maybe has a similar 'biography' or interests to you, but happens to live in China, click and get a little video diary or tour of their favourite restaurants, their school, a little snapshot of life in some far away village from the perspective of someone not too different to you.

Our world is becomming an interesting place. While it seems there's a whole generation there who are wanting to move the world further apart, there's also a generation there who are honestly going to feel like a person on the other side of the world is as close as the person down the street.

Wanna know how dangerous that site is???? I ran several local West Coast locations and all of the images remained blurred...but when I ran the White House, Pentagon, The Capital....you could see everything, every road, every exit, every ingree/egress to the area....I don't think the Taliban or other State's enemy knows of Google-Earth.....
