"Fifteen years ago, Mark Horvath was homeless on the streets of Los Angeles," begins YouTube's introduction to today's user spotlight. "Today, he runs InvisiblePeople.tv, a project that inspires people who live in tent cities, in shelters, and on sidewalks to share their stories on YouTube."

If you aren't familiar with Horvath's work, these videos are a great introduction. You may also know him from his blog, Twitter, or have had the pleasure to meet him in person.
