Visit our new Wikinerds Wiki!

The Wikinerds Community was founded by Nikolaos S. Karastathis (NSK) in 2004. We are nerds and we love science and technology, we support free/libre open-source software, and we use wikis to collaborate and create online knowledge bases, encyclopedias, and educational resources. The Wikinerds Community is a federation of wikis and other projects supported by their own sub-communities, each one having its own area of focus. Every project is autonomous and has its own rules and regulations. If this is you first visit to our website, we recommend visiting the Wikinerds Portal where most of our articles are published, and then start reading the Wikinerds Blog where you can read our news, as well as checking Planet Wikinerds which collects recent new content from all of our projects. If you want to participate in our community, we suggest to join our wikis and subscribe to our interactive mailing lists. Below you can see the complete list of our projects:
