Hear their groundbreaking ideas explored in-depth at this Seminar.

The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.

Seminar hosted by Stewart Brand.

There will be a reception at The Long Now Museum & Store following the Seminar.
