The Foundation Library at the Transhuman House is organized by collection, while some of those collections are not Transhuman specific there are two collections that are specific to transhumanists. The first is the Transhuman Collection and the other Transhumanist Fiction.
More than just a resource the Foundation Library has a number of important collections that are accessible at the Transhuman House. While the real purpose of the library is to preserve knowledge and that key facility is still kept private the public collections are here for educational purposes and to support related research both technical and cultural. The Key Collections at the Transhuman House are important as they related to Transhumanism and in Educating people on transhumanism and getting people to think about future.
(27 June 2017) H+Pedia has listed the Transhuman House on their Transhuman Wikipedia. IF you are not familiar with H+Pedia, you should be as it is the quintessential resource on everything Transhumanist related. From the hpluspedia site:
While we can’t take responsibility for it, someone has installed a digital dead drop in the front yard of the Transhuman House. You might say our apple tree supports USB 2.0 but use at your own risk as you ever know what might be on it. The Dead Drop peer to peer network is a network of real life dead drop file locations around the world.
Given some of us working on the Transhuman House are fans of Soylent we reached out to them and asked if they would be interested in helping with the project and as it turns out they were. We are excited to welcome them as a Sponsor. That being said, what is ‘Soylent’ and why did we want something like this at the Transhuman House for Guests to try?

I apologize to any Mormons offended by our Tuesday night Transhuman Home Evening but there it is.
One of the goals of the Transhuman House is to study how people deal with living in small homes as you might see in a high-density high-tech project such as the New Vistas Communities in part sponsored by Hall Labs. At the Transhuman House, we are asking guests to fill out a study form about their experience and we hope to collect the data over time to understand better the dynamics of these kinds of living environments.
Last MTA meeting I went to I was speaking with Lincoln Cannon about his new company “Thrivious” and their Nootropic stack.
I have been taking a Nootropic stack for some time and have read a lot of material on them. I’ve tried tDCS along with it and Nootropics like Piracetam and Aniracetam on top of the regular Continue reading “Nootropics and Thrivous – At The Transhuman House”
At the Transhuman House and the Library NFC is used to launch digital bits of information. For example, there is the picture of the Internal in the main room and on the picture, there is an NFC chip that when scanned opens up a web page to the interval on the Long Now. All throughout the displays are NFC chips and QR codes that launch informational pages about the topic in which they are labeled or applied.
The Transhuman House has its own GeoCache for several reasons. One it marks the location of one of the of public drop servers. Two and more importantly the GeoCache is fun. Some of the activities we do include tours of the local area and including geocaches. Having a GeoCache at the transhuman house and other important landmarks provide a way to engage the groups on these walking tours of the area and with the idea of the Transhuman House.
