Humanity+ is also launching a new membership program, Plus membership, for transhumanist enthusiasts.

We also expect to announce additional benefits for Plus members over the next year.

If you are too far away or otherwise unable to make it to L.A., don't worry! Humanity+ has chapters all over the world, and many of them hold free local meetups for transhumanists in their area. We've also set up a Twitter feed, so that you can be informed when a Humanity+ meetup is happening near you. If you or your friends are holding a meetup, just email us at info@humanityplus.org to let us know, and we'll help you get the word out.

Humanity+ @ CalTech is hosted by the California Institute of Technology and ab|inventio, the invention factory behind QLess, Whozat, SocialDiligence and MyNew.TV. Sponsorship is also provided by TechZuluand Vokle.
