What’s Up With Long Now?

The Long Now Foundation is trying to build a 10,000 year clock out in the desert of Nevada. I heard a great deal about this clock in 1999, but details have been sketchy since then. But work is proceeding, and Stewart Brand provided an update to the Edge mailing list last week. The Long Now Foundation conducted an expedition to their site in Nevada last summer to locate possible locations for their clock and meet with local authorities.
