Open Knowledge was founded in 2004, has grown globally, and is dedicated to building tools, projects and communities that promote open knowledge in all its forms. It is a leader in this field nationally and internationally. All Open Knowledge chapters are organized around local working groups and collaborative projects. Each of these initiatives has a different focus, but all are united by a common set of concerns and traditions related to the widespread sharing of knowledge across borders between groups as varied as academics, public servants, entrepreneurs, data experts, archivists, hackers and web developers.
