Kevin Rose, Tim Ferriss, Tim Dot discussed on The Kevin Rose Show


Everybody Kevin rose here. This is not a normal episode of the Kenro show. This is something called random show which have been doing for a long time with my buddy Tim Ferriss. We finally had a chance to get back together. Unfortunately, it was remotely. It was an impersonal, but it was still a lot of fun. So this is a show where we talk about all the random things that were up to into. I hope you enjoy it. Hello, boys and girls mug, wind gremlins. This is Tim Ferriss. If you're looking for perhaps some type of highbrow intellectual long form conversation. You might want to go to Tim dot log fort slash podcast for one of my other long form in. Those don't sell it. Short dude, come on. Hold on Kevin have introduced yet. But for those of you who enjoy the, the random helter skelter is a right word. I think it is nature. Well, I'm going to run with it of the random show which we haven't had an episode of for very, very long time in this conversation between yours, truly, and my good friend, Kevin, rose guest number one on the Tim Ferriss show. That's true. You were guest number one, the very first episode of the Tim Ferriss show, and actually that the my linked in bio now. Claim to fame, it's in your Google plus bio. We have not done random show for a long time, but I'll let you do if you want to do an introduction of the rent. I don't think we need to even know what episode Ron, like for those of you have heard the random show before. I think we've done probably if I had to guess it's maybe twenty five episodes, something like that twenty five episodes. So we're episode twenty-seven. Let's call it episode twenty-seven and Kevin for people who don't know you, what's your story? What would you like people to know about you? What's the speaker by over Zhen of Kevin rose? I don't even know these days. No, seriously. I would say that I've been a longtime internet entrepreneur, probably best known for creating these social news website dig back in two thousand four that grew to become a pretty big entity for a number of years. And then I was at Google as an investor. And now mitt true ventures as an investor, Tim United, probably co-invested and maybe a dozen or so angels. Yeah, at least Facebook together. I think Twitter together Twitter together, bluebottle. Coffee other job bunch of them side. Note, you remember how ridiculed we all were when the consortium of techies and non tech, he's invested in blue bottle coffee dearer how much shit we got on the internet for the absolutely like why would bluebottle need to raise money, Ian, but it's done. Okay. Had it had a great exit here just about a month ago. It has done. All right. It was a majority stake acquisition by Nestle for seven hundred million or so. So it worked out. So you've done very well as an investor. You are obsessed with many things Japanese you, you have a new obsession. It seems every few weeks. And do you have anything new to add? Actually, you know what I want. I want to hear about the fast mimicking diet because this something I thought I would have put money on. You never sticking with the fast moving diet and maybe can explain for people what that, but you've actually now done a number of scheduled five day yet. That's that's my. MD. So I'll start back by saying that probably the reason why Tim, you and I are friends. I met you when you were launching your first book on your boat party that you did. You rented as a worship at the San Francisco Bay and the SS Jeremiah, where they recorded a lot of the boiler room audio for the James Cameron movie Titanic. Crazy. In fact, it's awesome. But yeah, we hit it off because we both love all kinds of idea of lifelong learning, I think has been a theme that you and I both enjoy. And you know, I've certainly got really into biohacking in the last couple years I've watched from afar. You poke and prod yourself and squirt all kinds of different juices out of your elbow..
