Ping is a local community help beacon so other people can come to your rescue immediately. When you ping, it sets a pin on nearby user's maps to alert them of your problem and they can see if you help.

More examples -need someone to share a cab to a location but you do not know anyone -if you need a charger while you're on campus waiting between classes -need help with a new technology while your at a hackathon

Future ideas -Karma for people who help frequently -Bounty system to entice people to help if it is really important -Push notifications of pings near
