The “Homeless Hotspot” program at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, TX has been making headlines everywhere. In case you haven’t read about it yet, a marketing agency gave thirteen homeless individuals mobile Wi-Fi devices and t-shirts that read, “I am a 4G Hotspot.” You can read the Washington Post’s article about it here.
There are plenty of reactions: some positive, some negative. While some consider the program a kind of employment, others are criticizing it for being “exploitative.”
