I gave the Co-Closing Keynote speech at San Francisco's The Battery the other day to ultra high net worth families and their finance managers. My topic was #transhumanism and life extension. I'm hoping they might invest in these fields. Former Keynote speakers of this event include Newt Gingrich, Peter Thiel, Andre Agassi, etc. I'll share a recording of it when I get one. http://familyofficeassociation.com/

I've just returned from some busy travels and I'm still dealing with my own father's recent death, so I'm a bit late with this post, but legendary futurist Jacque Fresco passed away last week. He was 101 years old. I had the honor to meet Jacque and Roxanne Meadows last year at The Venus Project in Florida. I wrote an extensive article for Vice Motherboard on Jacque and the Resource-based economy: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/eliminating-money-taxes-and-ownership-will-bring-forth-technoutopia And Now This Future did a video on my visit with him that now has 14 million views and over 180,000 Facebook shares: https://www.facebook.com/NowThisFuture/videos/1500983249942850/ I'm grateful I met Jacque. He was an amazing person! And his important work will live on.

Tomorrow I give a 90-minute talk and Q&A at Moogfest on the cross-country 4-month Immortality Bus journey. My event starts at 4:30PM and is at: Carolina Theatre, Cinema 1 309 W Morgan St, Durham, NC 27701 The Immortality Bus, despite controversy and resistance from some transhumanists, defied many odds and has become one of the widely discussed pieces of art and events in the futurist world. Come watch never before seen slides on how the bus, science activism, and my presidential campaign made its way across America and delivered the Transhumanist Bill of Rights to the US Capitol. http://sched.co/AGbE & https://moogfest2017.sched.com/artist/info6094
