THE LONG NOW

When most people think of the word “now”, they usually mean yesterday, today, or tomorrow, and “nowadays” can mean years or decades. To think in longer terms, such as 10,000 years, the “Long Now”, is more challenging.  The fascinating Long Now Foundation works to “Serve the long view, Foster responsibility, and Reward patience”,  just like the UN where being radically committed to incremental change is the way to go. Among other intriguing projects, Long Now is creating a 10,000 year clock and a digital library of all the world languages.  www.longnow.org
