>From Slashdot:
There are many initiatives to bring tech to developing areas of the globe;
things like OLPC, Geekcorps, and UN programs. One new approach from
SolarNetOne strives to allow users in those developing areas to have access
to an internet connection<http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-solarnetone/>
without
having to depend on unreliable infrastructure.*"Each SolarNetOne kit is a
self-powered communications network. Energy is produced from a solar array
sized to each locale's latitude and predominant weather conditions. The
generated power is stored in a substantial battery array, and circuit
breakers and electronics protect the gear from overloads and other
perturbations. A basic kit includes five 'seats,' implemented as thin
clients connected through a LAN to a central server. The networking gear
also includes a long-range, omnidirectional WiFi access point, and a Session
Initiation Protocol (SIP) device. Each kit also includes all the cables and
wires required to assemble the system, so few additional materials are
required for an installation."*
