Renaud Gaudin spent several months volunteering with Geekcorps Mali, an NGO focused on creating technology solutions for the developing world. With Geekcorps Mali he built custom linux-based information and communications technologies.
He now works with Zirasun (a Bamako-based company) on bringing GNU/Linux to the desktops of West Africa. He is also the creator of moulin (http://moulinwiki.org), an offline distribution of Wikimedia projects targetting the third world.
An offline version of Wikipedia (and others Wikimedia projects) distributed to thousands of people in Africa and Middle-Est. The moulin project, born as a little script to bring more content to the 'Last Mile Initiative' project (Kiosks in remote rural areas of Mali) is now a widely used distribution in 8 languages including Arabic and Chinese. Learn how it works, how you can reuse it, who is actually using it and discuss how it should evolve.
