Relationship with Humanity+?

According to this 2010 article he was involved with promoting Humanity+? Deku-shrub (talk) 06:42, 25 June 2016 (CDT)

Perhaps I should check the Board minutes from 2010, but I'm not aware of any actual financial contributions (or other active support) from Peter Thiel to the Humanity+ organisation. (In contrast, Thiel's support for e.g. SENS has frequently been something discussed publicly.) He's not included on the organisation's set of advisors, and I've never seen any email exchange between him and the organisation, or heard any mention of such communication. --David W.

So, loose language from the writer of that article, conflating his involvement with other H+ related organisations with Humanity+ you think? Deku-shrub (talk) 16:57, 26 June 2016 (CDT)
