WOW! I never expected to cross 2 million photo views for my contributions to
Google Maps. I started doing this, just for karma points and to be on the good books of our (future) computer overlords who are likely to come from Google Brains.

Unbelievable! An ordinary photo I took of a neighbourhood park in Chennai was viewed over 60,000 times in Google Maps. Overall, all the photos I posted there was viewed half-a-million times.

We keep hearing the power and reach of Google services, but to see it in these “everyday” way was unbelievable!

These kind of positive examples are the reasons I still love “technology”.
