Our readers may recall our coverage from a few months ago regarding the use of Google Earth to track people who do not have permits for backyard swimming pools in the town of Riverhead, NY. Well, the Riverhead town council fought back and has voted against the use of Google Earth for tracking un-permitted swimming pools. So, what is the moral of this story? Move to Riverhead, NY if you want to install a pool and not worry about getting a permit. Seriously, the main takeaway is that too much “Big Brother” from Google Earth can scare the masses. Thoughts? Feedback?
