Welcome to Digirati's open-source software web site. You find all Digirati's contributions to Internet community here. We hope it's useful to you.
We are an Internet company happy with the Internet community. We use many products and services run by the Internet community, and we think that monthly donating to open projects is a good way to nurture our community to grow and prosper.
The picking criteria are that (1) we have to know the service or product, (2) use it, (3) be satisfied with its quality, and (4) it must be free.
If you want to participate, donate directly to one of the listed projects below. If you'd like to help our projects, contract one of the services offered by HostNet.
Beginning in October, 2007, Digirati started to delivery two one-hundred-dollar donations a month!
Beginning in December, 2008, We will add a link to the page where one can make a donation to the listed projects when it is not linked on the first page of the website of the project. We hope it will help those who also want to donate to the projects we already support.
Beginning in December, 2010, Digirati started to delivery three one-hundred-dollar donations a month!
Beginning in September, 2011, entities that have two or more significant products will receive US$200. Since some entities already received their donations this year, we'll donate again to them.
2016 December 16th (early January donation): Software Freedom Conservancy - is a not-for-profit organization that helps promote, improve, develop, and defend Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects. Conservancy provides a non-profit home and infrastructure for FLOSS projects. This allows FLOSS developers to focus on what they do best -- writing and improving FLOSS for the general public -- while Conservancy takes care of the projects' needs that do not relate directly to software development and documentation.
We donated US$ 200.00 through PayPal as an annual supporter.
2016 December 16th (early January donation): WordPress is a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. What a mouthful. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
We donated US$ 100.00 through PayPal.
Below is a list of papers published with the participation of people working at Digirati.
Besides being an important step in understanding the emergence of coordinated motion of flocks of birds flying in formation commonly found in nature, we consider this to be an initial step in the process of building self-organizing systems of distributed agents with no centralized control.
Abstract: We consider flocks of artificial birds and study the emergence of V-like formations during flight. We introduce a small set of fully distributed positioning rules to guide the birds' movements and demonstrate, by means of simulations, that they tend to lead to stabilization into several of the well-known V-like formations that have been observed in nature. We also provide quantitative indicators that we believe are closely related to achieving V-like formations, and study their behavior over a large set of independent simulations.
