Open Source Open Society (OS//OS) started as an exploration of how the principles of the open source software movement could apply to wider society and to champion the people doing this work.

We believe open principles can improve our businesses, improve the access and impact of technology and create a healthier democracy.


The internet has fundamentally rewritten the rules for human culture. We can transparently exchange information on a scale we have never been able to imagine before.

We can work together and collaborate at a species level.
Our individual freedom to innovate has never, ever been greater.

We have the collective potential to radically improve the world so it works better for everyone. Right now.

Welcome to the age of active participation.

Welcome to the world where being open is better for business, technology and democracy.
