Today is the first anniversary of the online community of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, and a good time to look back on some of the things we've accomplished so far.
1) Authored, Adopted and Amended the Constitution of the Mormon Transhumanist Association
2) Affiliated with the World Transhumanist Association
3) Authored and Presented at the Sunstone Symposium the "Parallels and Complements between Mormonism and Transhumanism"
4) Increased Regular Membership to 43 and Voting Membership to 13
5) Contributed to the Rosetta @ Home Project, Rising to Position 261 of 4711 in the World
6) Authored the Articles of Incorporation of the Mormon Transhumanist Association and Incorporated in the State of Utah of the United States
7) Elected and Organized a Board of Directors and Officers
9) Designed and Adopted the Logo of the Mormon Transhumanist Association
10) Increased Site Visits to Over 20,000 per Month
12) Engaged in Activities, Discussion about and Promotion of Mormon Transhumanism Here and Elsewhere
The future is looking bright for the Mormon Transhumanist Association. Various promotional opportunities are in the works: for example, Sunstone magazine will soon publish a new version of the "Parallels and Complements between Mormonism and Transhumanism" document as its cover article. Fund raising is accelerating as voting membership increases, substantial donations come in, and we work to complete additional projects such as the Transfigurism Book Store. Opportunities to forward the purpose of the association abound, and we'll be discussing how we can further engage in these over the coming year.
Thank you, Mormon Transhumanists, for your effort and support! Like you, my faith -- my will -- is that we will make a positive difference in the future, expanding both minds and hearts to forward the glorious work of bringing together, in all ways, the human and the divine.
