STS Wiki. Feel like Yourself Again.

Bryan Pfaffenberger has started an STS Wiki. I don’t yet know how I feel about this, but I want to feel good, and I want to be loved. Most of all I want it to be a useful resource and clearinghouse. If you feel the same way, and consider yourself part of STS (which in this case means Science, Technology and Society, or Science and Technology Studies, but not Super Turbo Sedan), then maybe you’d like to participate too! Bryan is also a member of CASTAC (Committee on the Anthropology of Science, Technology and Computing of the American Anthropological Association), which, by the by, is currently considering the question of whether it still needs to exist, or whether its purpose has been served, viz. to make STS safe for anthropology (or was it “to make anthropology safe for STS”? I forget who I am With and who I am Against these days). Anyways…
