MC Hammer paid a visit at San Quentin recently to talk to a group called The Last Mile, a group of five prisoners, led by two (free) venture capitalists who teach the men about new technologies, such as social media, and how to use those technologies to start a business. (They also have a Twitter, which we recommend following, and answer questions about prison life on Quora, done via help of free volunteers.)
SFist asked San Quentin News about Hammer's visit. "Hammer is now an entrepreneur and investor, who has worked with the venture capitalists who formed the group," they explained. "He gave an EXCELLENT talk about rebuilding a brand through social media — something these men will have to do when they parole and are labeled as ex-cons."
