Richard Long, a computer sciences student from the University of Birmingham, proposed a series of intelligent networks covering the UK providing access to news, entertainment,location services and even health and welfare monitoring.

Tom Dunmore, one of the judges: “We liked Richard’s entry because it combined a great understanding of what is already possible with an imaginative leap into the future”.
He wins a Bluetooth-equipped Mini, £5,000, a selection of Motorola’s ‘seamless mobility’ products and a six-week summer internship with Motorola.
