Internet, almost no interface

The Question Box provides Internet-based information through a live agent.  The user just presses a button on the box, which connects via intercom to the computer-equipped agent, who may be in another town.   The user asks a question, the agent does a search, and reads back the result.  Designed for communities without computers or connectivity, the Question Box certainly has a forgiving, low-demand interface.
