There are several phone apps in development intended to permit a rider to hitch with a driver for a near-real-time rideshare, such as Avego Shared Transport, RideNow and Flinc.mobi.  All of these systems assume a transfer of funds from rider to driver electronicly.  All of these systems use GPS mapping to match riders with drivers in complex ways.  None of these systems are publicly live.

Could any of you android developers hack together an app that simply notifies drivers headed in your general direction along the road that you are standing at of your destination and an offer in bitcoins?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

(http://www.ridenow.org/ OR http://www.avego.com/ OR http://www.flinc.org/) + Bitcoin = Shocked  Grin  Cool

This is just too much awesomness in a single point of this space-time continuum.
I can't bear it, I'm gonna blow. How do people actually produce such ideas ?

That's another good reason for a Bitcoin based app, as opposed to some $ based transfer system.

It doesn't matter, build the app, and they will come.

And a server setup to compare 10K GPS grid numbers and their vectors at a time.

Simple right?  Probably not, or these other apps would have hit the public by now.  Granted, these other guys are trying to compare destinations as well as some other issues, and might have trouble with the transfer payment laws across borders.  All that I'm asking for is a client that can tell the server "I'm Joe Sixpack, I'm trying to get (downtown|WalMart|Atlanta, Georgia|Burning Man), I'm willing to offer x.y bitcoins per mile to get me as far as you will take me, and I'm not a psycho" and then the server forward that message to the client of the driver who is approaching the GPS location of the rider and is traveling in the general direction of the rider's goal.  Future improvements to such an electronic thumb would likely come later if the principle is sound; for example, a peer rating system might prove valuable.  As in, "this guy never paid me for the trip|he said I have a perty mouth|he paid me in grade A toke" kind of peer ratings.
