The Interval Salon Talk Series 2019

Presented By

The Interval At The Long Now Foundation

Jan 22nd Through Jan 29th

The Interval At Long Now’s Tuesday evening Salon Talks continue during 2019 at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. The first salon conversation in 2019 is “Siberia” on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. “Siberia” is inspired in part by the exhilarating title, Woolly: The True Story Of The Quest To Revive One Of History’s Most Iconic Extinct Creatures, by author Ben Mezrich (he also wrote The Accidental Billionaires about Facebook and Bringing Down The House about high-stakes gambling).

The salon talk also reveals an inspiring Long Now project, Revive & Restore‘s effort to bring back the extinct Woolly Mammoth, based on efforts by Harvard University geneticist George M. Church and his intrepid team of scientists. Revive and Restore works with Church and his Russian counterpart, Sergey Zimov, who launched the “Pleistocene Park” restoration project in northern Siberia, where many mammoth remains and DNA can be found. Visionaries from The Interval and Long Now have traveled to the park and their journey is part of a documentary about Long Now founder Stewart Brand.

“Siberia” is inspired in part by the exhilarating title, Woolly: The True Story Of The Quest To Revive One Of History’s Most Iconic Extinct Creatures, by author Ben Mezrich (he also wrote The Accidental Billionaires about Facebook and Bringing Down The House about high-stakes gambling).

James Allen Jones‘ salon talk on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. focuses on “The Science Of Climate Fiction: Can Stories Lead To Social Action?”
