Wifi on Everest: Who's going to be the first mayor?

Conveniently, someone thought to wire up Everest so that when you reach the top, you can check into Foursquare. No, actually they decided to wire up Everest because... it hadn't been wired up before.

So I have two questions:
  1. Will this help with rescues? #win
  2. Who will be the first to check in on Foursquare? And you have to check in somewhere 3 times to be the mayor, so likely that the first person to become mayor on Everest will stay uncontested for some time, right?
