Vendor Week announced in The Economist

Vendor Week was announced today in The Economist – the London-based weekly news and international affairs magazine. In their piece ‘Words on the street‘ they looks the effects of technology on the street paper model, as well as the possibilities that technology provides for fighting homelessness. They conclude:

“Such fixes may let outsiders help the homeless. But they will not replace the best bit of the old street-newspaper model: giving homeless people a way to help themselves”.
