Liz and I head to Europe for a month early in August. We’re spending a week in Venice and I’ve beeen making good use of Google Maps to familiarise myself with the city. This afternoon I visited Caffè Florian in St Mark’s Square. This famous 18th century coffee house has been given the Google Streetview treatment, both indoors and outdoors.
Google has a policy of fuzzing the faces of people in the street so they are unrecognisable. Florian’s walls are lined with ancient portraits and guess what, Google has made them anonymous too!
