I've always been amazed at the potential of Wikipedia, to bring the entire knowledge of the world to everyone for free! However, there are many who don't have internet access in many parts of the world. I have written an article about a tiny WiFi web server I built, based on a 59 Gb downloadable image of Wikipedia, and a LinkIt 7688, which runs off a small USB battery pack. You can then connect to it with any phone, tablet, e-reader, or laptop. The price of this is incredibly cheap these days, the LinkIt 7688 costs US$15 and a 64 GB SD card costs less than US$20. For a very affordable price, anyone can have knowledge as both text and images about everything in human history, and carry it around in their pocket anywhere in the world and broadcast it to anyone nearby! It is only 63mm x 26mm in size, similar to a few coins. Everything is open source, and read my blog post to learn more about how to build this yourself.

I don't know what you're doing during your #CoffeBreak but I'm modding my team's very own #ZXSpectrum to do composite video output so we can hook it up to a modern television.
