Sheila: Oh yeah, there was a big debate about it. I heard it on NPR.
Dad: So what was the debate?
Sheila: They were putting mobile hot spots on homeless guys and sending them around Austin. So all the venture capital people needing wifi to make their deals could stop at a homeless person and get online.
Dad: Were they getting paid?
Sheila: Oh yeah.
Dad: So what's the controversy?
Sheila: Commodifying a person maybe? But the homeless guys were into it, apparently. They interviewed some of them as well. They made some money, felt part of the action.
Dad: Sounds like an ok deal to me. I mean, it's not like someone greased up a transmitter and involuntarilty shoved it up their asses.
Sheila: True. That might have been a bigger problem.
Dad: [Thinking.] You might call that Butt-Fi.
Sheila: A whole new era in the information revolution. A whole new form of Booty Call.
Dad: Get Skype's marketing people on the line.
