Default Student develops software to remove people from Google Street View

Google's Street View is an amazing little utility. Not only can it be used as a tool for obtaining directions or locating various landmarks, it can also serve as the obligatory barrel of laughs, especially if one specifically goes searching for various privacy-related bloopers, like people engaging in some unglamorous activity on public territory.

Of course, the fact that Google's cameras capture just about anything (and anyone) on the street has opened a can of worms. On its part, Google has offered to obscure out sensitive details such as human faces and license plate numbers on a case-by-case basis, but stopped short of actually removing the information from the images. And that was apparently enough to motivate Arturo Flores, a student from the University of California, to write his own software that actually removes people off Street View images.
