The Clock of the Long Now is an amazing project, an attempt to draw the human mind into thinking in spans of thousands of years. It is partly an art project, partly an archival effort, and partly propaganda of the deed, trying to shake us into a mindset which can imagine radical sustainability - not the kind of sustainability which might help our global society outlast the century (though that'd be a welcome relief), but the kind which might help it outlast the year 10,000.
And now they're getting closer and closer to building the thing. They've even bought a mountain in the Great Basin country. Stewart Brand has written a charming report to the Long Now board on the process of trying to figure out where on that mountain to put it.
