Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If this question was asked before, kindly point me to that because the related questions box did not show me anything. I know the following are directly related to SO: - Any programming questions - Any Servers and workstations related questions - Technology related - Support site for stackoverflow - Perhaps anything web related

Now, I've seen other sites like this: - Startup related questions - All math related questions

Now, two questions:

  1. How can I find "all" sites based off the principle of StackOverflow?
  2. Are these sites (the ones I mentioned above) managed by the same technical staff or they are all new businesses relying on StackOverflow?

@Oscar, SE is still in beta, so FogCreek are currently doing 0k/month – Rich Seller Nov 20 '09 at 9:11
Well, they are laying out a very strong foundation so once they are out of beta, I can see where this is going... – Legend Nov 20 '09 at 17:20
Mathoverflow is NOT for all math related questions. It's for professional/research level mathematics. Please edit this post so we can stop perpetuating that myth. – Jason S Jan 5 '10 at 16:05

Those are companies/people that have purchased the SO model called stackexchange.

It was created by the founders of SO to license out the SO model to others who wanted to create other question answer websites for other topics. They are not however part of the SO trilogy. They are customers of the SO product and supported on a customer level.
