About

outsidethe.net is an SRE and Operations-focused link-aggregation site created by Sam Pointer, launched on November 8th, 2016. It runs on a fork of the lobsters code-base created by Joshua Stein.

Many of the contributors here live and work in London, England. Quite a few could be considered members of the Playfish Mafia. The 'Playfish effect' is well documented.
