GitHub has made its name as an online repository for developers to post, borrow and collaborate on code together — with active users now numbering 4 million — but in the future it wants to take that model to new frontiers as a center for all kinds of online collaboration. “We want lawyers, people in the government, everyone to use GitHub,” its co-founder and CEO Tom Preston-Werner said today. Speaking at the TC Disrupt conference, he said the aim was to “extend the use cases for GitHub…I want people to use this for every reason.” Bootstrapped from its founding in 2007, the company earlier this year made a splash with a $100 million investment from Andreessen Horowitz.
