The Good of Google

Well I have been as nervous as anybody when it comes to Google's relentless cataloging of peoples personal information. Heck even this blog is part of their information network that spans blogs, pictures, videos and even images of our cities and streets. (Well not my street, but streets near me have street view. Don't know if I should be relieved or annoyed...)
But during the current Bushfire season Google have indeed come to the table with an amazingly useful feature, a Google Map of the Victorian bush fires with up-to-date information on the status of various fires.

See the internet CAN provide useful information and not just porn.
