A history of collaboration[edit | edit source]
Appropedia has a strong history of collaboration - from its foundation in April 2006 until today the community has reached out and sought to work with others. Individuals have regularly chosen to submerge their own ego when it was for the benefit of the project (and ultimately the planet).
Partners[edit | edit source]
