Differences between H+Pedia and Wikipedia
H+Pedia aims to follow the general principles of Wikipedia.
At the same time, the H+Pedia editorial team seek to demonstrate greater awareness and appreciation of transhumanism and radical futurism. This will be reflected by the inclusion in H+Pedia of material which might not pass the Wikipedia tests for notability, as currently applied by Wikipedia editors.
The guiding principles of H+Pedia are described in more detail in H+Pedia principles.
