The last thing I'm going to want to do when looking for a charge is get into a "Facebook/Twitter-wanna-be" state of mind and let me friends know that I'm cooling my heels at exit 14 waiting for the car in front of me to move. Am I missing the gene that requires I regularly tweet?
Nah! Nah! Nah, man! You got it all wrong, see? You use Foursquare to update your charging location and then blog about it on Tumblr then take a picture with YFrog and post it via Brizzley. Get with the program! Twitter? So old-school!
The scary thing is that those are all real.
...if we're going to get all William Gibson, let's dump this text stuff altogether and go to a 3D heads-up display in the car with an AI and a voice interface. Pull in EVSE locations, charger status, car telematics data, and give us a virtual appointment book.
"Leafbert, schedule a charger slot at 2pm for location A, with a 2:05 backup at location B, please. Confirm the blue car at A will be done at 1:57 and we still have 72% range remaining?"
Now it's all on the grid and I don't have to post anything to anywhere 'cause the car will do it.
