Every year I organize a local event called Festival Latinoamericano
Installation of Free Software Installation (
In the event students typically attend college in the states of Venezuela.
For this last event planned for April 28, I copied over 200 copies of Kiwix
with Wikipedia offline. However, this is often insufficient, therefore
conducted questions and if your answer is correct winner takes Kiwix back.
(A presentation flisol 2012
This year will be full of surprises, I devised the method of giving the
fruit Kiwix my personal computer and display in public.
Right now I am developing a linux live cd and Kiwix only, however, I do not
think I can have it ready for presentation.
At Easter, I will be visiting an Indian village with no internet
connection, I bought some WikiReader mainly looking for a solution to the
conection problem and electricityt. They do not have access to services
such as water and electricity.
I am not alone in this, there are several users helping me, including the
major contributor of Wikipedia in Wayuu incubator (
There are many things we are doing with Kiwix here, try to photograph
Any help is welcome....

Perhaps a nice kit would help. You know, like for organizing Linux
installation parties or Mozilla's event kits etc., that encourages
people, and provides step-by-step guidance and advice, to go and install
Kiwix with a relevant offline Wikipedia file in their local no-Internet (or
restricted/expensive Internet) school, college, community center, etc.
Would anyone be interested in working on that? WMF can contribute funding
for some materials -- a Kiwix quick-start guide or cheatsheet, stickers,

Do we know what drove the rise in downloads? Anything in particular?
Yes: notices on Wikipedia. In January, visitors were mostly generated by
a notice on WPES. Like written in the Sourceforge interview, the biggest
issue we face currently is lack of communication to our (potential)
end-users. We have remarked that people do not figure our that this is
possible to have the whole Wikipedia with pictures offline - then even
to not search on a Web search engine. This is our current priority to
improve this situation, one way is to put notices on Wikipedia.
