Eventbrite - Grassroots Microtalks

Rewinding the Clock of Aging

Dr. Bill Andrews, The Man who will Stop Time, President & CEO of Sierra Sciences and ultramarathoner

Popular Science magazine credits Andrews as the man who will stop time—or die trying. “Bill Andrews has spent two decades unlocking the molecular mechanisms of aging. His Mission: to extend the human life span to 150 years.”

He and his work are featured in the 2014 movie, “The Immortalists,” which won Best Documentary at the Tacoma Film Festival.

Everyone who RSVPs for Microtalks is invited to get a free copy of Bill’s book, “Curing Aging” (find it on the Longevity & Aging shelf at Grassroots). This offer available until 8pm on May 30, limit 100.


Burning Man Beyond the Playa

Rod Coleman, Burning Man Reno Regional Contact, General Manager of Sierra Computer Group and CFO of Highly Reliable Systems.

Burning Man has changed the culture of Reno, Silicon Valley, and beyond. It has spawned charitable groups such as Burners Without Borders and companies such as Black Rock Solar. It is one of the threads in a tapestry of legal reforms, for example marijuana and same-sex marriage.

Rod has details and can speculate about the future.


Decentralized Connected Devices Make the World Better

Eric Jennings, CEO of Filament

“Filament is a startup that is taking two of the most overhyped ideas in the tech community—the block chain and the Internet of things—and applying them to the most boring problems the world has ever seen. Gathering data from farms, mines, oil platforms and other remote or highly secure places. The combination could prove to be powerful,” according to Fortune magazine.
