PreviousIndexNext Rodcorp: Airport designers are designing the kernel of a future city

On TV a couple of weeks back there was a documentary about people who leave everything behind - walk off and don’t call their family/friends. One young guy went to Heathrow (I think) and lived there for a long time - months I think, maybe more. He made it sound like quite a few people live in these places - an area would become popular for various reasons but before long security would cotton on and folks would move on. As he emphasised, unlike normal homeless folks, you need to maintain a certain level of cleanliness in order to blend in with the travellers.
