The OKFN is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2004 which is dedicated to promoting open knowledge in all its forms. We build tools, projects and communities with a network of international leaders in this field. The Foundation’s activities are organized around individual working groups, regional communities and projects, each focused on a different aspect of open knowledge, but united by a common set of concerns, and a common set of traditions in both etiquette and process. In general they are focused on the principles of open discussion, meritocracy and tolerance.
