We've released our mobile forums application to the Google Play store for open beta testing, allowing anyone to communicate, research, and collaborate with everyone in long-form, structured discourse with one of the first neo-forum applications ever. Forums are coming back, and we invite you to check out our biohacking forums app! iOS support is coming soon.

Forums have served an essential role in the early stages of the internet, allowing people from around the world to converse with one another around discussions that can last years. Forums once served as the primary method of online discussion within communities.

Over the years, the prevalence of forums and the quality of discussions have taken a sharp decline with the rise of microblogging platforms, such as Reddit and Discord, which adjust the format of communication to prioritize more real-time communications. This style of communication has a variety of benefits, which is why the International Biohacking Community takes use of these platforms but has been slowly made forums used due to the lack of convenience of utilizing forums compared to mainstream solutions.

This is why we have built the International Biohacking Community Forums app, to provide people within the biohacking, DIY-biology, and grinding community be able to hold rich, long-term discussions to progress the dissemination of information and discussion around research without sacrificing the convenience of discussion. The release of our open-beta Android program is one of the first steps of building an open and interoperable ecosystem of tools to further innovation and research within biohacking.
