The Clock of the Long Now: Time and Responsibility, the Ideas Behind the World’s Slowest Computer

★★★★☆

Review:

Wise essays about the concepts that led Brand and his collaborators to start the Long Now Foundation, which promotes slower thinking and cultural responsibility through strange projects like designing a huge clock that will last 10,000 years. Brand has a lot to say about the trajectory of technology and I think it’s valuable input, although I’m not going to start using 10,000-year notation (as in the year 02012).
