TRANSHUMANIST MEET-UP DATABASE

Transhumanity.net editor Hank Pellissier is happy to meet transhumanists for lunch in Oakland. He can be reached at hankpellissier@yahoo.com

Hey. My name is Lisa Evans and I’m an illustrator from the UK. I’d love to meet up with other transhumanists to explore ideas and collaborate on creative projects. firefluff@gmail.com

Winslow Strong winslow.strong@gmail.com  Hi all, I’m located in Zurich, Switzerland for the moment.  Would like to connect with transhumanists and biohackers.  I blog athttp://biohackyourself.com

Jameson Rohrer - Newburgh, Indiana here.I am a transhumanist, and will be going into the U.S.Navy. This summer. I am looking to anyone whom I can network with, and eventually help implement trans and post human technologies into my body. Please network with me, for when we share can our species truly grow and transcend our biology.  Librarytech87@gmail.com

Sean Henderson - looking to meet Transhumanists in the Portland, Oregon, area, for fun, collaboration, and networking. - I’m interested in longevity regimens, cryonics, bio hacking, abolishing unwanted suffering (the main goal), and ways to improve upon life in general. Currently I believe that Transhumanism needs to become more political to address the laws and regulations which are preventing us from developing technological solutions for suffering. Theloveofknowledge@gmail.com

Jønathan Lyons - I’m in Central Pennsylvania, Amish/Mennonite country, teaching at Bucknell University, and I am a writer of experimental fiction and transhumanist essays, particularly essays on personhood. jonathan.lyons@bucknell.edu 

Ari - Looking for friends of a transhumanist persuasion in SF Bay Area (near Mountain View) related to Quantified Self / tDCS / nootropics / socialize neosymian@gmail.com 

Jacob Ervin jacobkyle88@gmail.com  Interested in transhumanist meetups in the bay area/San Francisco 

Robert Schryvers  robert@robertschryvers.com TransHumanist in Seattle, Hypnotherapist. Interested in negligible senescence, performance enhancement, etc.

We are a small group in Traverse City MIchigan, interested in gathering and using practical ideas that help with health longevity. We believe if we have more time to think, to discover, to explore, we might put ourselves in a position to gain greater insight and creativity to solve the problem of short lifespan of less than 120 years. We have been experimenting and using multiple approaches to include: gravity inversion, food, fiber, supplements, probiotics, exercise, auto-vibration, auto-massage, speed running, walking, sleeping, etc. If you would like to join our group contact me (Sam Vorhauer) at Galt6@sbcglobal.net

LongeCity is a cyberspace platformfor people across the globe, but we appreciate the value of old-fashioned face to face meetings. We index and support local chapters, workshops and meetings that are run by our members, by affiliates and related organizations. Local get-togethers and conferences present another great chance to get involved in some real world action, discussion and networking for the life extension cause. Why not say ‘hi’ in the forum section for your region and see whats up?

Email megalorich@gmail.com for more info. Hi, I’m Massimo Lupi - I live in northeastern Italyand I’m an entrepreneur. I own an e-commerce website dealing with italian high-end products. I am interested in everything about Transhumanism: technological trends and forecast, social developments, art, literature, movies, videogames and virtual reality. I am particularly interested in sharing ideas about possible businesses that the convergence of technologies can provide, and discussing possible new philosophical and spiritual systems that could eradicate human pessimism and nay-saying towards self-directed evolution, thus accelerating the political, social and cultural process of reducing the suffering of all sentient beings. I’d love to hear from techno-optimists from all over the world!  massimoluppi@alice.it Chris Smedly Chris.smedley@live.ca Scott Weaver - Chicagoland area - sweaver69@gmail.com SF Bay Area Artificial Intelligence MeetUp - For details about this group, check the website at http://ai-meetup.orgFor videos of selected past meetups, see http://videos.syntience.comFor information about the organizer and her ideas about AI, see http://syntience.com/links We meet occasionally (not as frequently as we used to) on either second and fourth Sundays of the month to discuss AI topics such as - Symbolic and SubSymbolic Artificial Intelligence, Artificial Life, and Artificial Intuition - Complexity theory, Model theory, Model Free Methods - Semantic Web, Ontology based systems - Robotics and Robot Ethics - Linguistics, Document understanding, and Semantics - Evolutionary Computation - GA and GP - Computer Consciousness, Novelty, and Creativity - Neuroscience, Connectome Algorithms - Human Learning, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning - Epistemology, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science, Reductionism and Holism - AI, Singularity, nanoTechnology, and the future / Our meetings typically consist of a roughly one hour presentation followed by another hour of discussion on any AI-related topic.

MILE - the Movement for Indefinite Life Extension contact: via message button at themile.info Facebook page. MILEworks to execute a series of goals to bring awareness of indefinite life extension to the world stage (8 million+ people) through themile.info by July of 2017. This is because the goal of indefinite life extension gets here in proportion to the relative speed at which the world goes to get there. Being a movement, the leaders of each branch and project supported by it (currently 11 key organizations and networks) are the leaders of the movement. There are a variety of details that go into working to drive these goals and this movement to success and it is all coordinated through themile.info Facebook page.
