Homeless Hotspots @SXSW

Commentary on BBH’s Homeless Hotspots project at SXSW 2012:

"Homeless people have been enlisted to roam the streets wearing T-shirts that say “I am a 4G hotspot.” Passersby can pay what they wish to get online via the 4G-to-Wi-Fi device that the person is carrying. It is a neat idea on a practical level, but also a little dystopian. When the infrastructure fails us… we turn human beings into infrastructure?"

"We love innovation. We love technology. We love creativity. We love entertainment. But ultimately, those realities are shadowed by suffering. Abuse. Degradation. Marginalization. For me, it becomes necessary to integrate the two. Ultimately, we are talking about the need to be more hopeful, more committed, more dedicated to the basic challenges of living in a complex world." — Bryan Stevenson
