The Long Now Foundation
The Long Now Foundation was established in 01996* to develop the Clock and Library projects, as well as to become the seed of a very long-term cultural institution. The Long Now Foundation hopes to provide a counterpoint to today's accelerating culture and help make long-term thinking more common. We hope to foster responsibility in the framework of the next 10,000 years.
Seminars About Long-Term Thinking Podcast
The Long Now Foundation produces two monthly audio podcasts, one for each of their ongoing lecture series, which you can subscribe to. Long Now podcasts and videos are free for everyone to enjoy thanks to the support of their donors and Long Now members.
The Long Now Foundation's monthly Seminars were started in 02003 to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking; to help nudge civilization toward our goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
