Hank Pellissier

Hank Pellissier formally served as IEET Managing Director and is an IEET Affiliate Scholar.  He’s the author of several books including Invent Utopia Now, former editor at Transhumanity.net, and founder of BrighterBrains.org

A journalist, Hank was the “Local Intelligence” columnist for the New York Times (San Francisco edition) and he’s a frequent contributor to GreatSchools.org. Past work includes a daily column for Salon.com (“Naked World”), two columns for SfGate.com (“Urban Animal” and “Odd Barkings”), and dozens of futurist articles for the IEET, H+ Magazine, World Future Society, and Acceler8or, occasionally under his nom de plume, “Hank Hyena.”

Hank has raised charity funds via GoFundMe.com and Indiegogo for “TransHumanitarian” projects in The Philippines and Africa that have dewormed 1,100 children and provided food, clothing, shoes, socks, tools, and educational supplies. In western Uganda he’s launched eight health clinics (one is “H+ Clinic”), one science centre, and he co-founded BiZoHa - the world’s first atheist orphanage.
