The Google HistoryPin collaboration is a digital time machine that lets consumers see the world they live and play in through history's eyes. Within the past two years, digital mapping of things you like, places you've have been to and even street art you have spotted around town, have been accessible through the net. Now, the new social movement of HistoryPin is a collaboration with Google in regards to this development.

The site gives its users the power to share images from their personal photo albums, as well as divulge the memories behind them. Developed in partnership with Google, the site incorporates a unique use for Google Maps and Street View, meaning images can be dated as well as geo-tagged and then "pinned" into place on top of modern Street View photography.
