Google Street View predictions

1) Spotting one of the “Google vans” (Is this it?) becomes the new Where’s Waldo.

2) Locating Street View imagery of one’s self intentionally doing stupid things for the camera on said van becomes a new measure of geek stardom.

3) [I’m half-way serious about this one] Google (or a partner) finds a way to produce a cost-effective collection platform that can be distributed to private individuals–who’ll be given some amount of compensation for periodically sending imagery back to Google–for the purpose of expanding Street View to those areas that might otherwise be cost-prohibitive to capture.
