About us

We make this together

Known is built by an open source community with contributors all over the world. We believe in creating easy-to-use, open tools and respectful software.

Known was co-founded by Ben Werdmuller and Erin Jo Richey in San Francisco, but it's much bigger than that. Our open source community members are constantly creating new plugins and functionality.

Known's community of publishers include broadcasters, universities, and individual creators. Our dynamic users are technical early adopters, passionate educators, and enthusiastic learners.
