> to see that we have achieved to do that, and even more.
> All of this would not have been made possible without a committed team
> of volunteers and the strong support of Wikimedia Switzerland. Thanks to
> them (and a few other ones) we have achieved to:
> * Make Wikipedia readable offline on (almost) all kind of devices
> * Provide monthly updates of all Wikimedia projects
> * Provide an open-source/standardised offline technology re-usable for
> any kind of web content with openZIM
> * Build offline versions of various projects like Gutenberg, TEDs,
> Vikidia, Youtube, ...
> With the additional help of dozens of partners, which spread content and
> technology in the field, we can track around 1M of users a year... and
> strongly believe this is the "tip of the iceberg".
> Luckily, in the last 10 years, we have done a lot of progresses in the
> Internet access. That said, around half of the world population still
> does not have an access to Internet and censorship is a raising and
> already extremely serious problem.
> As a consequence, we will be pretty busy in the next decade and will
> continue to improve our technology and offer always better solutions to
> read and spread free knowledge - offline.
> We have made a blog post about our anniversary on Wikimedia blog, please
> share it on the social networks:
