What is hplusroadmap?

We are a group chat, started 15 years ago, focusing on transhumanism, writing code, and hacking on biology. We do mad science. We build. We also have some funding available for sufficiently interesting projects.

We have some other items on the wiki, like the internet's largest collection of targets for human genetic modifications: https://diyhpl.us/wiki/genetic-modifications/

Really appreciated those transcripts, great work!

I came from the Lex Fridman podcast, I'm a software/system engineer by trade and cybersecurity & outer-space enthusiast etc. I heard about e/acc before etc. but awesome to learn about the source of it, I like what you guys doing accelerating evolution etc. AI has been regulated and limited recently but awesome to see people who don't want it limited. And awesome to see new ideas and creativity.

I support you. If you can keep my future wife forever young, she will surely be very happy.
