About the author
Renaud Gaudin

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.

Abstract
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.
