Google Earth Keyhole Team

Brian McClendon shared a photo last week of the original team that built Google Earth. Google acquired Keyhole 15 years ago and this is the photo they took of the team from that day.

Brain said on Twitter "15 years today, Keyhole was acquired by Google and we began to build Google Earth. Daniel, @esruben @lifeofc MarkA @johnhanke (and 23 others, including Dede who took the picture)."

I remember seeing that tech 15 years ago and it was mind blowing!
