Join members of the Long Now Board and invited speakers for a virtual Long Conversation to reflect on the current moment, how it fits into our deeper future, and how we can address threats to civilization that are rare but ultimately predictable.
Long Conversation is a relay conversation of 20 minute one-to-one conversations; each speaker has an un-scripted conversation with the speaker before them, and then speaks with the next participant before they themselves rotate off. This relay conversation format was first presented under the auspices of Artangel in London at a Longplayer performance in 02009.
Long Conversation speakers are: Stewart Brand • Esther Dyson • David Eagleman • Ping Fu • Katherine Fulton • Danny Hillis • Kevin Kelly • Ramez Naam • Alexander Rose • Paul Saffo • Peter Schwartz • Tiffany Shlain • Bina Venkataraman • Geoffrey West
“Long Converation” was given on April 14, 02020 as part of Long Now’s Seminar series. The series was started in 02003 to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking from some of the world’s leading thinkers. The Seminars take place in San Francisco and are curated and hosted by Stewart Brand. To follow the talks, you can:
