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 that not only uses many products and services run by Internet communities, but we are also willing to help these communities. We monthly choose three projects and donate US$ 100.00 to each one.
The picking criteria are that we have to know the service or product, use it, be happy with its quality, and 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 our divisions: HostNet, and 100br.
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$200. Since some entities already received their donations this year, we'll donate again to them.
2014 March 14th: The TeX Users Group (TUG) was founded in 1980 to provide an organization for people who are interested in typography and font design, and/or are users of the TeX typesetting system invented by Donald Knuth. TUG is a not-for-profit organization by, for, and of its members, also representing the interests of TeX users worldwide. It is almost entirely member-supported, so if you use any TeX-related programs (TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, Metafont, MetaPost, Texinfo, et al.), please consider joining TUG (or any other TeX user group).
We donated US$ 200.00 directly.
2014 March 14th: The phpMyAdmin Project - phpMyAdmin is a tool written in PHP intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web.
We donated US$ 100.00 through Conservancy/PayPal.
2014 February 4th: OpenSSH is a FREE version of the SSH connectivity tools that technical users of the Internet rely on. Users of telnet, rlogin, and ftp may not realize that their password is transmitted across the Internet unencrypted, but it is. OpenSSH encrypts all traffic (including passwords) to effectively eliminate eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and other attacks. Additionally, OpenSSH provides secure tunneling capabilities and several authentication methods, and supports all SSH protocol versions.
We donated US$ 100.00 through OpenBSD Foundation/PayPal.
2014 February 4th: The GNOME Foundation - The GNOME Project is an effort to create a complete, free and easy-to-use desktop environment for users, as well as a powerful application development framework for software developers. GNOME is part of the GNU Project, is Free Software, and developed as Open Source software. The GNOME Foundation will work to further the goal of the GNOME project: to create a computing platform for use by the general public that is completely free software.
We donated US$ 200.00 through PayPal.
2014 February 4th (late 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$ 200.00 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.
