The Journeyman Hacker
Bloggers, magazines and newspapers mostly complained that he hinted code was worth more than food and shelter or that there was such a thing as “justly homeless” by the title of article. They even said he was using this man to make a name for himself, but I argue that this situation was much different than the ad agency that transformed homeless people into Wi-Fi hotspots at last year’s SXSW festival for $20/day.
An alternative proposal like McConlogue may certainly cause a stir, but his good and constructive intentions are evident. As Leo, formerly known as “The Journeyman Hacker”, resisted temptation for accepting an instant $100, he agreed to do something proactive that will give him the tools to overcome his current situation. Something that has the potential to provide him with endless opportunities in a constantly evolving tech world.
