Humanity+ (Humanity plus) was founded in 1998 as the World Transhumanist Association. The archived site can be found at http://transhumanism.org/index.php/WTA/hvcs/

The name Humanity+ and stylised h+ logo were adopted in 2008.

Resources

Humanity+ publishes the web magazine h+ Magazine.

Historically, Humanity+ hosted the TransVision series of conferences.
