Abstract (maximum 500 words)

Offline Wikimedia will provide the wikimedia support even if the internet connection is not present. Imagine if we are in a plane and I remember reading an important article in Wikipedia which I want to read again to present in a meeting, I cannot do. Wikipedia could be made offline available which will synch with the main server whenever the user connects again with internet. Offline Wikimedia could also be provided with mobile devices, TV apps and Web Browsers. This will let enable carry his favorite Wikimedia articles always with him. Also as Wikimedia pages are designed with common structural pattern, user can used analytic or semantic tools to generate report out of his saved pages. This will extend the usage of Wikimedia as per the user needs and will add more fun to using Wikimedia.
