The first thing many people think when they hear about Microsoft and Amazon taking pictures of city streets to include in local search is, “Where are they? I want to be in the picture!”

Problem is, most of us wouldn’t even know what to look for. Is it a truck? A van? An SUV? Is there a big camera array, or a hole in the side, or some sort of periscope device? Should I be looking for a big antenna?

I’ve gotten a few emails from people thinking they saw the trucks. Its not like the trucks say on them, “Smile! You’re on Windows Live Local!”

Hmm Maybe they should. Create a buzz, ya know?

Anyway, Microsoft’s inadvertantly helped us out, with an honest-to-god picture of the van. How? The van took a picture of itself, reflected in a store window! Nice.
