What is PI Lab?

The PI Lab is conducts research in innovation, mass collaboration, persuasive technologies & the potential of social networks to promote new paths to global peace.
What is Peace Dot?
The Peace Innovation project started with Peace Dot. The goal of Peace Dot is simple: persuade any individual, organization or corporation with a website to create a peace subdomain that spotlights what they are doing to help promote peace in the world.
“The Peace Dot idea is simple: Orgs set up a subdomain at http://peace.%5BDomainName%5D.com. At that page orgs share their work. At Stanford, we gather Peace Dot pages into a directory.”
So far, over 50 sites ranging from Facebook to the Dalai Lama Foundation, Khan Academy to CouchSurfing, in multiple languages have created peace dot pages around the world.
