Open Source Development Network

The Open Source Development Network (OSDN) describes itself as a "news, collaboration and distribution community for IT and Open Source development, implementation and innovation." OSDN is supported by VA Software and dedicated to the Open Source Initiative. It is an attempt to bring together talent to create software that conforms to the GNU license model promoted by the Free Software Foundation.

Sites hosted (outside links)

OSDN dropped sometime in late 2001/early 2002 because the subject matter of the news site had become increasingly less about nerd stuff and increasingly more about politics, philosophy, the workplace, and other 'liberal arts fluff' that many engineers dislike.
