Following is a summary of my lightning talk on Annotum2Go at the August WordPress DC meetup.
Open-source WordPress theme for open access scientific publishing

Annotum stand-alone use cases
- Individual users creating articles: http://annotum.org/system-vision-and-use-cases/ (i.e., using Annotum like MS-Word to create JATS-XML documents)
- Development environment while traveling or otherwise offline
- Stand-alone WAMP stack
- Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP

Important: be sure to set Server2Go to save changes (i.e., non-CD mode) as described here.
- Pre-configured Annotum runtime environment

- Installs and runs without admin privileges in most cases
- Completely stand-alone – no internet connection required.
- Tip: to allow your Annotum2Go (or Server2Go) setup to send mail, install Mercury Mail (and see the instructions in this Gist).
