"omeless people are being turned into walking Wi-Fi aerials as part of a 'charitable experiment' by a New York ad agency. Bartle, Bogle and Hegarty (BBH) handed out free Novatel Wireless MiFi gadgets to the peddlers -- along with T-shirts bearing their names and the words 'I'm a 4G hotspot' -- for its Homeless Hotspots project at the South by Southwest (SXSW) arts and tech festival in Austin, Texas. ... It's suggested that users pay their human service providers $2 per 15 minutes, although any donation is accepted." (03/13/12)
