From Geekosystem: in an effort to increase the cellular data coverage at South by Southwest, a certain marketing group  has devised a rather unique solution that’s caused some heated discussion all over the Internet; they’re using homeless people as 4G hotspots. If you’re a SXSW attendee and want access to a hotspot, 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.

Back in December, The Mary Sue brought you the news that the identities of the possible first Chinese women taikonauts (their word for astronauts) may have inadvertently leaked thanks to a stamp collector in Germany. Now we’ve got some more concrete proof as an unspecified number of women have passed through to final training for the space mission. Wang Yaping and Liu Yang were two of seven signatures. We can’t say for sure whether they are the two in the running now but odds are good. The question is, will they make the final cut? Read more about it here.

From The Jane Dough: snagging an interview with the first lady is an accomplishment in itself, but asking tough questions is particularly impressive for a young, novice journalist. Especially when she hasn’t even taken her SATs yet. And when she’s questioning the First Lady of the United States. Topanga Sena, an 11-year-old reporter for Scholastic News in Florida, can knock both of the above off her bucket list. As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, the middle school aged girl recently had the opportunity to speak with Michelle Obama about her Let’s Move! campaign and whether it oversteps its boundaries.
