While looking at the referred searches, I noticed a lot of hits from people looking for entries on "googlestreets"; it looks like we've got the #1 hit on Google for the term.

What's interesting is that GoogleStreets is not even a Google approved name; it's just referred to as the "Street View" of GoogleMaps on their site. I'm rather surprised that Google's not gone out of the way to own it as it appears to have been chosen organically. As the great philosopher-poet, Scott Adams, said (well, more or less) about naming his feline HR character: "If people spontaneously give a character a name, who am I to argue?"

The number of hits is down so I checked Google… we’re #4! #4!

Hm, doesn’t sound so good any more.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
