Origin of term 'grinding'
'''Grinders''' are people who apply the hacker ethic to improve their own biological bodies with do-it-yourself cybernetic devices and self-mutations. Many grinders identify with the [[biopunk]] movement (also rarely admitted with cyberculture/cyberpunk movement as well and sometimes with postcyberpunk or cypherpunk movements), [[open source]] [[transhumanism]], and [[technoprogressivism]].
 
== Origins ==
 
In role-playing games, 'grinding' is the practice of engaging in repetitive tasks to improve a character. The 2007 comic series <i>[[Doktor Sleepless]]</i> by [[Warren Ellis]] compared this to the progression of DIY transhumanism.<ref>[http://sequart.org/magazine/39426/unfinished-apocalypse-doktor-sleepless/ Unfinished Apocalypse: <i>Doktor Sleepless</i>]</ref>
