Abstract
Internet-in-a-Box seeks to provide a device with software which creates a Wi-Fi hotspot that offers closed platform access to Wikimedia content. In practice, this means that users who are physically in the hotspot can connect to the device by Wi-Fi and access or download Wikimedia content. The Internet-in-a-Box is not intended to further connect users to Internet access or content beyond what is presented in the Internet-in-a-Box itself. This presentation will review the history of offline Wikipedia services and present this current attempt to succeed in delivering Wikimedia content to users who cannot access it online.
