A community project merging art, poetry, and science with open-source tools.
The Curious Penguins began as an illustrated poem about science that was created in 2007. The artwork from the poem is now available as NFTs and ownership of a Curious Penguins NFT is your key to shaping our future community-driven projects.
We Penguins find solutions with Linux and other open-source software that is free and open for anyone to use. We aim to break boundaries imposed by copyright, big tech and big government. Instead focusing on community-driven projects like our tree planting project, or our renewable-energy mail server. We also have many other projects planned so be sure to join our penguin community.
To many things require a subscription, hidden behind a paywall or have some kind of imposed restircted access. Why are things so hard? Why can't my tech be fixed? Why is there a no swimming sign? Where are solutions based on sustainability?
With the advent of Web3 we are aiming to provide greater access to open standards, increased data security, scalability, and privacy for users to combat the influence of large technology companies. Built on Linux, utilizing free and open-source software solutions, Curious Penguins care not only about open standards, but also sustainability and that is why we have taken steps to find solutions to reduce our environmental impact. If you too are curious about innovation and making science open to everyone, join our community.
The metaverse might sound interesting, but accessing the metaverse is only possible if we have a planet to live on.

No, we just also happen to love penguins and prefer using Linux-based software and tools that are free and open to everyone. Curious Penguins follows an "Open source first" approach that we look to open source before we consider vendor-based products. We understand that using open source technology correctly requires us to do more than just consume, that is why we commit talent and resources to participate in the open source community.
