community developing, implementing, and using 'open source' solutions in the 'Creative Arts' continues to grow. There
are now hundreds of sites containing information about the global 'open' community for artists and their use of open source software, technologies, and
solutions spreading across the web. As we started spending thousands of
hours surfing the web searching and looking at all these sites trying to
find the 'good' sites - sites that contain useful information; have
been around for a while; are high quality, and are regularly updated -
we decided to put all those links on our own web site to save others
from having to spend a lot of their time repeating the same process. We
hope you find this site a useful starting point as you investigate the topic of 'open' information, technologies, and solutions for the Creative Arts.
Our intention is to continually improve this web site over time.
