LIMSWiki.org is Owned by LabLynx

Okay people, here is your Internet lesson 101. When you obtain a domain name you have to register it with a real name, address and other contact information. There is a way for you to keep the information secure using various domain guarding tools provided by your registrar, but that is for a different discussion.

If you want to know who owns a particular domain name (and they have not used some privacy option to keep you from knowing it) all you have to do is use a tool that retrieves the domain ownership information. There is an online tool that does this at whois.net.

At the time of running this query (10:17 p.m. CST on June 27, 2012) here are the results:

Domain ID:D161993215-LROR
Domain Name:LIMSWIKI.ORG
Created On:09-Apr-2011 16:11:49 UTC
Last Updated On:01-Apr-2012 15:31:54 UTC
Expiration Date:09-Apr-2016 16:11:49 UTC
Sponsoring Registrar:Domain.com, LLC (R1915-LROR)
Status:OK
Registrant ID:DOT-D7QIBOFP1EJI
Registrant Name:John Jones
Registrant Organization:LabLynx, Inc.

The LIMSWiki.org domain, and consequently the website, is owned by John Jones, the owner of LabLynx. By the way, on the home page of the LIMSWiki website LabLynx is listed as the number one company under the 'Key laboratory informatics vendors' subsection of the page.

This is generally the problem with vendor-supplied online resources that attempt to do something for LIMS education. They have a tendency to lean toward some covert form of marketing.
