About the Lab

The Stanford Open Source Lab was founded in November 2007 by a group of people from across Stanford who feel that openness matters. We’ll be using this space to post event announcements and share news about the lab, and aggregate related activities from across the University.

Our main visibility at present comes from the open workshops we put on. Watch the blog for updates on these.

We have high hopes of expanding our work into other areas such as software development, university policy work, open access publishing. Basically anything that will help open access to the knowledge we produce and consume in what ever form that may take.

Get involved

We have a mailing list and all are welcome to join or to read the archives. Day to day discussions as well as meeting announcements happens here.
