Open Projects Net is a work in progress, created in 1998 to promote projects and activities which involve open access to technology or information.

OPN’s founder, Robert Levin, has been head of operations for the Linux Internet Support Cooperative since 1994. LISC runs an IRC support channel called #LinPeople on Open Projects Net. Having experienced first hand the benefits of free software, Robert set out to apply those benefits to a wider world.

Open Projects Net’s focus includes open source and free software applications and operating systems, open hardware, open standards, free technology, technological education, public domain advocacy, literacy, open access for the disabled and public access to art. Its slogan sums up the focus: Open source, open technology, open information.
