  • I’m feeling playful.
  • I’m feeling stellar.
  • I’m feeling hungry.
  • I’m feeling artistic.

Street view of Google offices

 

This is such a cool video. I use google maps’ street view all the time, but this is the first time I see it used indoors.

The video takes a tour around some Google offices and servers, in one of their many “data centers”. The servers shown are huge and many, the buildings looks like a huge industrial factory.

If you want to explore the center even further just click on this [maps link] to check out the street view on your own.

Update: I updated the post with some beautiful pictures of Google’s data center, published by the Daily Mail [link].

Google is celebrating the Flintstones 50th anniversary. This is great. The Flintstones is one of my, and many’s, favorite childhood cartoons. I hate how these days cartoons are so bad and rude, and would love to see the old cartoons on reruns on TV.
