Just learned that Brion Vibber CTO at MedaWiki is joining
Evan Promodoro's team:

While that is a separate effort from WikiTravel, one might
hope it will not be all that hard to get an OpenZim dump
for NanoNote when qi-hardware team is ready.

In some ways, WikiTravel might be a more compelling
NanoNote app than Wipipedia.
