Humorous Poop Map Has a Positive Impact in San Francisco

One Bay Area software engineer has discovered a unique way to help San Francisco’s homeless population.

Jenn Wong created human wasteland. It’s a website that uses data from human waste reports made to 311 in San Francisco and it maps the location of human poop using the poop emoji.  Wong says, while she originally meant the website to be funny, her poop map has had a positive impact.

“There’s a pilot program going on now, in San Francisco, that is providing supervised access to toilets. And they have posted those toilet sites up in different locations around the city. Plus, it has also brought a lot of attention to the issue of homelessness because it’s a problem that needs to be solved. While this may not solve homelessness, it helps them with a major problem that comes from living on the streets.”

Wong was a guest on McIntyre in the Morning.
