That's pretty cool and all but I would guess that their citizens would rather have the cash in their pocket than spent on this.

But it is neat.

"Pages jaunes" is French for yellow pages, international name for phonebooks of commercial enterprises.
You gotta pay to have a (bigger) ad in 'em, so I think for once it's good ol' advertising rather than pointless spending of government funds ;-)

Funny thing is the widespread use of a computer database called Minitel in France prior to Al Gore's marvellous invention.
And as seems to be human nature in regards to the anonimous availabilty of vast amounts of information, it was porn (pages roses?) that quickly dominated Minitel too.
