Turning homeless people into WiFi networks

Homeless hotspots

When I read this I thought April Fool’s Day had come early – but it actually appears to be real. An Austin, Texas company has created a mobile WiFi network by attaching transmitters to homeless people and having them wonder the town!! The “Homeless Hotspots” plan even has a map showing users where the mobile hotspots are. The public pay for access and the homeless managers of the hotspot get to keep some of the money. Really hard to believe the world has come to this – hopefully it is some kind of joke.
