SourceForge helps bring developers from all over the globe together

At SourceForge, Inc., our mission is to surprise, delight, and inform the global community. We offer tools for software collaboration and distribution through our SourceForge.net site. We offer "news for nerds" at Slashdot.org. And we offer cool products for technophiles and the people who love them at ThinkGeek.com.

Taking part in the Peace Dot initiative is a natural extension of our mission. By fostering collaboration and community, SourceForge helps break down walls that keep people apart, improves the quality of their lives, and gives them tools to focus on helping others.
