Well, there are various reasons to fork from wikipedia, which i think
sts wiki does. there is much more perspective about STS that can
never be non-neutral in the wikipedia tradition, as is sts-centric.
similarly if you try to fit some elements of knowledge into the
wikipedia categories, you will run into strong resistance from other
traditions... so to have a richer, more meaningful way for the
arena of sts, i think a fork had to happen there. given the
diversity of the topics that you specify, i'm not sure what will
happen, but it is an interesting idea and i support it.
