It’s late notice, but we’re going to see Tim O’Reilly speak at Long Now tonight, and we have a couple extra tickets. The talk is titled Birth of the Global Mind, and it’s at 7:30 at the Cowell Theater at Fort Mason. Ping me if you’re interested!
I’ve been a Long Now Foundation member for a few years now, and I really enjoy being part of their community. They think about what it means to take the very long view – 10,000 years! – and then advocate for and work on projects for that horizon. I tend toward the long view myself, but they take it to an extreme, and I love watching the shift in perspective they demand.
See you there!
