So you're on the Google and you want to see what a road in Turkey looks like. You click on the map, and, holy crap, there's a photo of it at street level. That's thanks to Google Street View, where they use cars and bikes to take pictures of the world. And now one of the drivers is here to answer your questions.

Street View is one of the cooler, and more intrusive, mapping features that we've ever seen. A camera mounted on top of a car takes 360 degree pictures as it drives up and down streets. Those pictures then get uploaded to the internets months later for your viewing pleasure. And then you see some cool stuff, like Google spying on Google or a donkey that appears dead.


I once saw the car driving down the street in my neighborhood. I'm anxiously waiting for the day when the pictures of me running after it appear online.

Due to non-disclosure agreements and Google's secretive nature, we cannot reveal the identity of the driver that has agreed to risk life and limb to talk to you today. But we are satisfied with the proof he has provided us that he is who he says he is.


So jump in below. The driver will be here for the next hour to answer any and all of your questions about what goes in to driving the car, weird things he's seen, so on and so forth.

Have at it!
