One of the more interesting Internet tales that I’ve followed in a cursory manner over the years is phone booth in the Mojave desert. The final chapter in the saga is the removal of the phone booth at the request of the federal government because it attracted too much traffic (the area where the phone booth is now part of a national park). Interestingly, one can attribute the increased traffic in large part to the Web page about the phone booth that I’ve linked to. (Thanks to Lake Effect for the pointer.)
