Social Charging?

A while ago I helped out a friend of mine, Gertjan Geurts at Blue Max, with a pitch for his Social Charging concept in the Open Data FWD Challenge. We had some lengthy discussion on Google Hangouts while I was commuting in the train, providing some feedback for what to use in his pitch.

His plan is to utilise data of charging stations to help people get the most of the chargers. I'm glad to share he won the contest and is now busy taking his plan to the next level. For now, his plan is shared on his special website of Social Charging where you can sign up for the mailing list.
