I love Google Street View, but I never really figured out how they did it — how you turn your cursor in any direction, even overhead, and still get a picture. Now I know: That nine-camera pod pictured here.

Today, I discovered a great website, where an artist named John Rafman has compiled Google Street images from around the globe. It's a fascinating collection, as much a social commentary as it is global voyeurism. Check it out here.

And to whet your interest, here are a few samples:
