The World's First Internet Bench

The "internet bench" at Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds, UK, was installed in 2001 as a place you can get connected. There was no wifi at the time, so the bench's phone connections could be useful for that, but there were very few laptops, either. You can imagine that it wasn't a big success. But that wasn't really the point. Tom Scott explains.
