Googler Asks, “Marry Me” Via Google Maps
The Google Earth Blog reports that Googler Michael Weiss-Malik has proposed to his girlfriend, Leslie, via Google Maps. They documented everything on their new web site, MarryMeLeslie.com, but here is a picture of the proposal using an embeddable Google Map:

The picture was taken via Google Street Views at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California. Yes, those are all Googlers behind Michael. Michawl said on his blog:
My name is Michael Weiss-Malik, and I work for Google. I don’t work on the Street View team, but I interact with them pretty regularly. They decided to coordinate a pre-announced Street View run outside Google’s Mountain View offices, with the idea that Googlers could line up along the street and appear in the imagery. So I put together my “Proposal 2.0” billboard and showed up, hoping that it’d be readily visible. And it was!
Will she say yes?
This is not the first time someone proposed via Google Maps. We saw on Satellite views a roof top with “Will Marry Me” drawn at the top of building.
Personally, this marriage proposal rocks. I am of course biased, being that I proposed to my wife via a search engine in 2005.
