I'm an Uber Driver Partner and very excited to work with Uber. My target users are Uber Driver Partners. I enjoy engaging the Driver Partner community and wanted to use my skill-set to help keep Drivers engaged since we are an important part of the process. I'm most proud of the increased engagement from community members with the application.

Hi, all. I haven't posted here in awhile - a lots been happening. Still receiving love from Driver-Partners with the app and in the middle of it all, I had the birth of my daughter, so I've been pretty busy. We've done a major update to the landing page (today) and I've consolidated to the following markets: Washington DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, and Austin. Since this Hackathon is now closed, please visit us at www.WhereMySurgeApp.com, follow us on Twitter (updated most frequently) or blog.wheremysurgeapp.com. I didn't win anything through this Hackathon, but it's been extraordinarily fulfilling being able to help increase the income of Driver-Partners globally. Thanks again for your support on this journey!

Best, Herb.

We've had overwhelming success with the platform - we're adding about a dozen new cities (internationally, too) which were requested. I’ve setup a landing page now at www.wheremysurgeapp.com for you to add your email, desired city, state/country and any comments - what is it that you want to see in a platform for Driver-Partners? (We doin' it FUBU style - you know!). Tell us and leave your email so we can follow up. We'll have new updates by Wednesday (June 3rd) or so. Remember to follow us on Twitter at @WhereMySurgeApp, Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WhereMySurgeApp, and upvote us on Product Hunt too: http://www.producthunt.com/posts/wheremysurgeapp. For those of you whose money is burning a hole in your pocket, hit us up on AngelList: https://angel.co/wheremysurgeapp. Ok - that’s it. Gotta go man-#uber-ing for some airport runs.

A recent comment on ProductHunt from the CMO of RequestedApp.com:

"Is it possible that by getting more drivers to potential surge locations, you'll lower the % of the surge pricing for users? I see a potential win-win."

Great stuff!

It’s off to the races - demand has escaped from the Driver-Partner community to the general public. We’ve created a new category "#SDaaS - Surge Demand as a Service”. We’re featured on ProductHunt and Twitter - I’m getting about a dozen people a second through the server but we’re all good (a lot of the pre-work I performed is working). It’s been quiet here on ChallengePost, but for the few that may be paying attention, I appreciate your support. I began a few weeks ago as a Driver-Partner and simply wanted to help my peers and myself make better decisions in a positive fashion without having to game the Uber system. I believed using technology as a tool could help achieve that goal - it did. The DP community wanted about two things: 1) someone listening to them and 2) something to address their concerns. Working with Partners locally and around the world we’ve been able to align towards an outcome that works better for us and the company.

Also: I have tons of email to get through so I promise I’ll respond over the weekend (gotta get back to driving - my payment statement's going to be a little light!)

Thanks, Herb.

Ok, everyone - I've updated SMS push notifications: http://screencast.com/t/PjtUD5eBBi The way Partners have been using it is that it alerts them to their "area of interest" and then they proceed with their strategy; after I integrate charts, I'll make it more granular and integrate with event data ("Oxon Hill, MD near Livingston and Bock Rd - X event occuring."). I'll also post updates on @WhereMySurgeApp on Twitter, as well.
