Mobile Future

Car is newest social vehicle

What’s the next frontier of social networking? The road. Wired.com took a look at new technology unveiled by entrepreneur Mitch Thrower, founder of Bump.com–a new service for drivers to register their vehicles’ license plates to help businesses connect with drivers and drivers connect with one another. The technology should be available in beta by Thanksgiving, just in time for holiday travels.

From Wired.com:

Once it gains ground, Thrower said, the possibilities for Bump are nearly endless. Fleets and cab companies can use Bump to contact their drivers, meter maids can alert you when your car is about to get towed, car manufacturers can send important recall information directly to Bump accounts and eventually drivers will be able to renew their licenses and registrations through the service.
