This is all handy but doesn't answer my question
on what phrasing to use.
This is because we like answering the easy questions you didn't ask
rather than the hard ones you did ask ;-)
I'm ambivalent on what ought to go on there, but I'd suggest a number
of articles rather than a number of words, and to make sure to have
the word "Wikipedia" on it, emphasised if possible. People know what
it is; they've heard of it and they know what it signifies, so we get
to save a lot of explanatory verbiage that way.
Would "Wikipedia offline - 45,000 checked articles and images" fit?
Memory sticks will be sent out to a few journalists to
which case the balance of risk that they wipe and keep is ok), to warm
schools which we already know have it on their intranet and possibly
to some other Wikipedia folk who have a known track record of going
around schools (in Bangalore or whereever) and loading them onto a lot
of computers and intranets. Oh and possibly the new UK WP board if
Excellent, this is the approach I was hoping you were going to tell us
you were using :-)
