Leo Grand's new carpooling app is ready for download.
Some online writers are asking us all to buy it, whether we need it or not.
This is why:
In mid-August, a young programmer named Patrick McConlogue approached Grand, who has been homeless in Manhattan since he got laid off in 2011. McConlogue, 23, offered Grand a choice: he could take $100 or he could learn how to code.
Grand, 37, took McConlogue up on the second offer and began 16 weeks of coding lessons with him.
Thousands of people followed Grand's story.
"It is by far the most rewarding experience of my life," McConlogue said of teaching his new friend a valuable skill.
