About us

LSD was founded in 2001 as a pure play open source company that wants to inspire the world to embrace OPEN principles and technology, while being superhuman and having fun!

Why LSD?

In the 20 years since our inception, we’ve assembled a team of passionate open source technologists who have designed and managed open source systems for some of the largest organisations in the world. (We’re even working on the universe now that Linux is on Mars). We want to always be OPEN with you and ensure you have the freedom to innovate.
