Bitcoin Membantu Hidup Gelandangan Homeless, Unemployed, and Surviving on Bitcoins BY  DANIELA HERNANDEZ 09.20.13 6:30 AM Paul Harrison, Chris Kantola, and Jesse Angle, scrounging for bitcoins outside a public library in Pensacola, Florida. Photo: Michael Spooneybarger/WIRED Jesse Angle is homeless, living on the streets of Pensacola, Florida. Sometimes he spends the night at a local church. Other nights, he sleeps behind a building in the heart of the city, underneath a carport that protects him from the rain. Each morning, he wakes up, grabs some food, and makes his way to Martin Luther King Plaza, a downtown park built where the trolley tracks used to run. He likes this park because his friends hang out there too, and it's a good place to pick up some spending money. But he doesn't panhandle. He uses the internet. The park offers free wireless access, and with his laptop, Angle watches YouTube videos in exchange for bitcoin

Material world

Materialism makes trauma harder to handle Andy Henion-Michigan State Materialistic people experience more stress from traumatic events and are more likely to spend compulsively as a result, a new study suggests. "When the going gets tough, the materialistic go shopping," says Ayalla Ruvio, assistant professor of marketing in Michigan State University's Broad College of Business. "And this compulsive and impulsive spending is likely to produce even greater stress and lower well-being. Essentially, materialism appears to make bad events even worse."

NYTimes: In Indonesia, a Governor at Home on the Streets In Indonesia, a Governor at Home on the Streets Rony Zakaria for The International Herald Tribune Joko Widodo, the governor of Jakarta, made an unannounced visit to the Tanah Abang market in August, where he is a frequent visitor. By  JOE COCHRANE Published: September 25, 2013 JAKARTA, Indonesia — Each day, Joko Widodo, the governor of Jakarta, does something practically unheard-of among Indonesia's political elite: he ventures into the streets to speak with the people who elected him.

The king of all virtually free travelers is one David Phillips, a civil engineer who teaches at the University of California, Davis. David came to the attention of the wider media when he managed to convert about 12,150 cups of Healthy Choice chocolate pudding into over a million Air Miles. Ever since, David and his entire family have been travelling the world for next to nothing. So how did he do it? Well, first we need to explain the kind of man David Phillips is; he's the kind of guy who reads every inch of the small print on things. The kind of guy who learned to count cards just so he'd never
