[UPDATED] Hello everyone, I drive the Google StreetView Car. IAMA and I'll even tell you about the new recent update and underwaterview.
I've seen some good media coverage online from this IAmA. Thanks to all!
If anyone from the media wishes to contact me, please PM me on here and I will do a private Q&A.
Hello all once again, doing another IAmA. Why? Well I don't really post that much on Reddit, mostly browse, so karma doesn't matter to me, especially in a self post.
Anyway, so you may have all heard about Google StreetView's new update! I've been driving as a contracted driver for Google under a third-party company for about 3 months now.
I have mostly been part of the update project since I started, I haven't really added too much to the new system, mostly just improving it and such as the update states. I did have an option to help with the UnderwaterView, but it would result in me having to pay all expenses to get there, don't really have the money to do so. After all, this job is a temp-job.
Anyway, right now I'm nearing the finishing of my routes in New England and then will be going a little west and south, going to about Virginia or so. I'm one of the lucky few who has been kept on due to my hard work (and them overworking me and me not complaining...money is money).
So yeah, ask me anything. The only thing I can't answer is my current location or where I will be going and what route, due to my own safety.
I did get into a minor fender bender with my van that I had, so they gave me one of the Imprezas to drive. I prefer this car much more, but it does behave a little topheavy in windy conditions.
