I want hackerspaces to be the centre of the revolution.  But I also want the theory page on hackerspaces wiki to be about theoretical work on what is going on in/with hackerspaces, rather than about visions, and advocacy of your particular breed of revolution (even if i may agree with you on that vision).

my understanding is that if people want to write theoretical stuff on hackerspaces, they can go to the page and see what work has been done before and what are the theoretical interpretations of hackerspaces in the academic or similar discourses.  this is important especially for researchers who are new to this field.
