Google Maps’ Street View is no longer limited to streets, the company is now using tricycles to photograph off-road locations like the gardens at the San Diego Art Institute or Château de Chenonceaux in Civray-de-Touraine, France."

I don't know about you but to me boycotting banks sounds like a good idea as long as you can store your money safely.

Maybe it's just because I'm Icelandic and I'm aware of the reality of the bank being able to tell you that you cannot withdraw money because they lost it.

Not to mention that I look down on most economists and people in business and consider them leeches of society. I hope technology can replace them before I die, especially the bankers.

This happened one year ago (see article) and what interesting data could one possibly hope to find within the walls of the Icelandic Parliament? And even if there was any, there are easier ways of looking for it than gaining entry to the offices and leaving a laptop there. It's even more silly to think Wikileaks were involved.
