There's been YoYo at Monash University - a general access UNIX machine.
Always run by volunteer students, for students (and staff) where doing
actual work was banned :)

Less relevant these days due to everybody being able to get their hands
on a UNIX like system and internet.

At high school I was part of a group that helped educate other students
on how to use the internet (web, mail and usenet mostly). Now everybody
knows about it though. We also did the school's web site.
