Technology

Good ideas become great when we collaborate. The open source community is built around that notion. By freely sharing ideas, creations, and code, we can make a better world for everyone – a world driven by innovation, and not by profit.

MousePaw Media is powered by free and open source software. Check out the projects we use, and consider helping them stay alive and growing. Promoting these projects, contributing your knowledge and skills to them, and if possible, donating to them, helps keep this dream alive.
