Bump.com Big Brother’s Cousin


The Wall Street Journal - March 9, 2011

Bump.com, an online start-up, is cre­at­ing a way for peo­ple to ping each oth­er using their license plates. The company’s founder, Mitch Throw­er, com­pares the ser­vice to online coupon and loca­tion-shar­ing sites — with one excep­tion. “It’s like a Groupon or Foursquare that you can’t turn off,” he says.
