How to Mess Up a Site: Google Maps Hides Street View

Oh, good idea, Google people — hide one of Google Maps’ most valuable features. Tried street view lately?  Can’t find it? Of course not. It’s now effectively hidden.

Go ahead, try.  We’ll wait.

OK, you tried and can’t get it to work?

Drag the little orange guy to the street you want.  Sure, obvious, right?

You do remember street view of South Hall, right? Well, it’s gone.

Want to know which streets have street view? Well, once you’ve figured out the secret, if you drag the little orange guy around, those streets will light up while you hold the mouse button down.

Obvious, easy, sure. No problem.  We knew that.
