The 4-Hour Body: Hacking the Human Body

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Sunday 13th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Based on lessons learned during research for the #1 New York Times bestseller, The 4-Hour Body, this session will look at how to systematically hack the human body. From losing 100 pounds to running 100 miles, lifting 500 pounds or holding your breath for 5 minutes -- what are the limits? From screw-ups (emergency surgery, anyone?) to importing stem-cell growth factor from Israel for black market injections, Tim will discuss the promises, pitfalls, and methods of cutting-edge self-experimentation.

LEVEL: Intermediate
