What are people referring to when they talk about the Stack Overflow "trilogy"? Sometimes they refer to it as the Stack Exchange trilogy...

  • This was closed, but I think it is more useful than having to scroll down to the bottom of the glossary page to get the answer one is looking for... especially in, for example, Google search results – Baumr Nov 29 '12 at 20:42

I had this question myself:

As detailed on the official blog, the Stack Overflow trilogy includes the first three projects:

  1. StackOverflow.com for programmers
  2. ServerFault.com for sys admins and support specialists
  3. SuperUser.com for computer enthusiasts and power usrs

Their successes spawned the implementation of the StackExchange.com network with the multitude of Q&A websites you see today.

    Trilogy is also mentioned in the Stack Exchange Glossary. – user102937 Nov 28 '12 at 16:28
  • @RobertHarvey, thanks - good suggestion. – Baumr Nov 29 '12 at 20:41
  • Better to say the success of SO spawned the network. ServerFault is about 1.5% of the size and 1% of the activity of SO. Most of that is just spillover from SO. – Hack-R Jul 13 '16 at 23:31
