At FON I have been blogging about the possibility of helping homeless people generate income through FON. Many dismissed this idea saying that the homeless are the least technology savvy people but here´s an article on Wired that reinforces my view that they are not. My idea is to get homeless people to go to areas where there´s FON coverage and alert others who carry wifi devices such as PDA´s, laptops, wifi game consoles like PSP´s, Nintendo DS that there´s FON wifi in the area free for foneros and at $3 per day or $10 for 5 days for non foneros and pay them for doing so. Basically they would wear FON T Shirts or carry FON signs.
