The Yellow Chair: Free Wi-Fi and Potential Interaction

You know it’s got to be intriguing if I, who can’t stand people, think that something involving interaction with others is interesting.

This concept also got neighbors to talk to one another instead of just “borrowing” bandwidth or typing away without any knowledge of the people living just a few yards from them.
