Walking Pier 39 with MapJack. Going where no cars have gone before.

I know its research tuesday and I will post a few interesting reads from McGonigal and SSRN a little later on but for now more MapJack goodness.

You thought you were alone walking along San Fran’s Pier 39 on a sunny day about year ago. Did you notice someone with a weird camera pack? Well apparently they noticed you. True to its marketing statements MapJack has mapped a number of pedestrian only walk-ways and judging by peoples faces their camera rig must have really stood out.

What others have done with NASA budgets and Star Wars-like equipment, we’ve done on a shoestring budget, along with a few trips to Radio Shack.

This is by far one of the coolest privacy invading uses of technology I’ve seen in a while. I cant wait till they map central park, so many “quickies” in the park to be captured for the world to see, so little time.

  1. For sure MapJack is an early bird in this field of StreetView mapping and they did an awesome job at the beginning ;)
