Ad agency BBH wanted to help the homeless during Austin’s SXSW conference,
so they decided to turn 13 homeless men into walking Wi-Fi hotspots, providing
Internet connections for bandwidth-hungry conferencegoers.
The “Homeless Hotspots” sported shirts saying, “I’m _____, a 4G hotspot,”
with a code to text for access. All donations for the service — made via PayPal —
went to the men themselves.
The project immediately drew criticism from SXSW attendees, some of whom
called it “disturbing” and “offensive,” or thought it might be a hoax.
“The worry is that these people are suddenly just hardware,” said BBH’s Saneel Radia,
who came up with the campaign, “but frankly, I wouldn’t have done this if i didn’t
believe otherwise,” He added, “we’re very open to this criticism.”

Flight attendant's outburst delays flight
Back in August 2010, Jet Blue employee Steven Slater started ranting to the entire plane before releasing
the emergency door and exiting via one of those inflatable slide/life rafts.
By the time he got out of prison, he was famous. This will not happen to this flight attendant.
N.J. city running out of toilet paper
TRENTON, N.J., March 13 (UPI) --
Officials in Trenton, N.J.,
say City Hall is almost out of toilet paper
and they need a new contract before they can replace the empty rolls.
Trenton City Council president Kathy McBride said Monday
the city is down to a half box of toilet paper
and one box of paper towel while the council is embroiled
in a disagreement with Mayor Tony Mack about a contract
that would keep city-run facilities supplied for a year,
The Times of Trenton reported Tuesday.
"I'm embarrassed," McBride said of the shortage.
"I'm a little disgusted, and I feel we're doing an injustice
to the residents of the city and the employees."
McBride and maintenance supervisor Paul Heater
said facilities including City Hall, senior centers,
the police department, the fire department,
the museum and water filtration plant
do not have enough supplies to last the rest of the week.
"It's something that should be taken care of right away," Heater said.
McBride called on her council colleagues to approve Mack's
proposed $42,000 contract to have paper products
supplied to the city for a year.
Drunk buggy driving? Amish nabbed after hitting cop car
Authorities in western New York say
they've charged four young Amish adults
with illegal possession of alcohol after
their buggy collided with a police car responding
to a report of a drinking party under way.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets
that the crash occurred around 7:15 p.m. Sunday
in the rural town of Sherman, near the Pennsylvania border
in New York's southwest corner.
Officials say deputies were responding to reports that people
were drinking in several Amish buggies on a country road.
As a patrol car arrived on the scene,
one of the Amish buggies changed lanes,
colliding with the police vehicle.
The buggy flipped onto its side, causing minor injuries
to one of the people on board.
Police say several other buggies fled the scene.
