Steve Flaherty pictured here with his MDA (Mobile Data Association) award for Best Use of Short Range Data for the Starsight Project. Well done Steve - you and the Kolam Partnership team deserve it.

The Starsight Project has a multi service architecture delivering solar powered WiFi within solar powered street lighting units, and providing light and broadband internet access with the future potential for voice.

ah yes, I should ditch the geekspeak!
What it means is that Steve has come up with a way of using solar power + wifi (wireless internet technology) to create lighting, security cameras, internet access, telephony etc in places where cabling is not feasible. For example in certain parts of the developing world, as soon as you put a copper cable in the ground, it gets dug up and sold on the street. Where you install street lighting, crime reduces dramatically. And if you allow people telephony and internet access, they suddenly start being able to negotiate prices to buy/sell produce without the need to trek to market each day (which can be several hours journey). Pretty neat huh!

Very interesting idea.

Is Steve Flaherty, moblogger username Steve too? And does he have a blog/wiki/website about the project?

Steve isn't on moblog UK but you can read a bit more about it on my blog at and there'll be a company blog and pix coming soon. They're in the midst of sorting out pilots in Africa at the moment. You'll also find out more about Steve over at (including contact details) as he gets involved in a variety of mobile-related projects (I'm involved in some of them too) and if you'd like to meet him and you're in London, we're holding a networking drinks called Swedish Beers on 29/11 at the Nordic Bar, W1. It's for anyone with a passing interest in things mobile. Usually a good laugh.
