YouTube user TheHumanTim has arrived, and just in the nick of time, with his heavy metal version of the classic TV show theme song. I'm off to drown my sorrows in some pizza and sewer skateboarding. Kowabunga indeed...

The Iguana is a seaworthy boat even in rough seas, a fast boat (40 knots), a high quality good looking boat, a boat capable of traveling short distances on dry land across unstable land, at a low speed, but without the necessity to drive on roads, in the end, a boat easy to live with, both with family and friends.

GIFs are a fun little party for your desktop, and as a digital medium they are officially 25 years old!

If you’re a SXSW attendee and want access, all you have to do is make a donation of your choosing to the homeless hotspot you wish to “use” and you’ll receive unlimited access, suggested donation $2 per 15 minutes. When all is said and done, each “Hotspot Manager,” as they are called, gets to keep all the donations made in order to gain access to his particular hotspot.
While having roaming hotspots may be very useful for SXSW attendees who want better access to network connectivity considering that Wi-Fi is lacking, the concept of taking the homeless and “turning them into” infrastructure has some implications that don’t go over well with everyone. “The shirt doesn’t say, ‘I have a 4G hotspot.’ It says, ‘I am a 4G hotspot,’” Jon Mitchell of Read Write Web points out.
Front Steps, based in Austin and responsible for finding the Hotspot Managers, all of whom were selected after a fairly detailed application process, says that the project fits with the organization’s goals of ”empowerment, education, and encouragement of the client to earn an income while saving the majority of those earnings with a goal of moving to safe and stable housing.”
