Long Now Boston presents selected
FLASH TALKS by members of the Long Now Boston Community.

FLASH TALK concepts will be original, interesting and designed to provoke discussion on science, technology, society or culture with a very long-term perspective, consistent with the aspiration of “striving to be good ancestors.”

Each FLASH TALK will be followed with a Q&A, and audience members will then be asked to vote for their favorite presentation. All FLASH TALK participants will join the final panel conversation and Q&A, after which the winner will be announced.

SPEAKERS SELECTED

• Consequences of Increasing Life Span: Seth Roades (founder, Robur Health)
