Attempting to recreate or reform Wikipedia might be a bit difficult.  If 
the immediate concern is about what is being deleted then a less 
ambitious approach is to start mirroring a read-only copy an any page 
that gets put into the deletion process by Wikipedia.  The result would 
only address the deletion problem but would be a start.  The downside of 
doing all of the articles marked for deletion means that a lot of stuff 
of little interest would be collected but perhaps there is a market for 
it; I do not know.

Or more to the concerns of persons on this list a project could started 
for mirroring all of the articles on Wikipedia related to transhumanism, 
extropians, and other topics of interest to persons on this list. Put 
the mirror up in the cloud such as AWS and the cost will be relatively 
low.  [Disclosure: I currently work for Amazon so my mention of AWS is 
slightly self-serving.]

Also note that there are currently other information sites.
A couple of examples:

I am kicking around a few more ideas and if anything seems useful I will 
post them.
