Marriage Proposal in Street View!

Google decided to take some new Street View images at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California. This time they must have let the employees know, as there are many Googlers lining the street. They must have given advance warning, because some people came prepared.
One Googler named Michael Weiss-Malik, a member of the Google Geo team that dos Google Maps/Earth, actually decided to make a wedding proposal in Street View. He put up a sign which you can see here:

He also has a web site called MarryMeLeslie.com which describes why he did it, and why it’s called “2.0”. If you turn your view to the left or right, you can see the line of Googlers down the street. Move your view down the street to get a look at all the interesting things they decided to show. You can also view these with the Street View layer inside Google Earth for a more immersive experience.

  11. I think that’s taking web 2.0 a little bit too far. From the street view it’s apparent that Google has a very casual dress code; everyone is wearing jeans.
    Interesting to note that some people had their faces blurred while others did not. Must be a blast to work in the Google offices.
    I don’t the bride said yes btw because if she did he would have mentioned it on his website.
