well, so this is realistic in the bay area. you might as well call it quits if you are homeless. where is it for anybody to be living? maybe give people a job at linkedin or somewhere else. how ridiculous and self-serving

I think this is a nice attempt to help people get on their feet. What's wrong with that, Randy? The process needs to start somewhere, and why not here and why not now? It's better than doing nothing, and it's absolutely relevant and appropriate that LinkedIn be the sponsor. I'm having trouble figuring out what point you're trying to make. (Would it hurt to use capitalization and complete sentences so you can be understood?)

Thanks LinkedIn. Good work. And let us know how to be volunteers for next time.
