I've asked a sister question at Law: Could the scope of law accommodate the full scope of Ask Patents?.
We have a wonderfully committed little community here, with a few regular contributors. But I fair that's not quite enough to guarantee our long-term stability. There have been many discussion over the years what could be done to fix our little corner of SE. However, so many of the changes are seemingly impossible, in view of the unique genesis of Ask Patents.
However, Robert Cartaino suggested a merger might be possible. While not a perfect outcome, in my view, this would at least solve part of the issues related to an overly small number of eyes on each question.
Would you be in favour?
As an aside, I do feel a little traitorous asking for annexation by a larger state. I'm envisioning more of a Newfoundland situation and less of a Tibet situation.
