Long Views, the blog of the Long Now Foundation, tracks news, art and ideas related to large-scale and long-term thought and action. As Research Fellow of the Foundation I contribute occasionally, and am grateful for feedback as well as leads to interesting stories in this vein.
My recent posts:
A long view of world population (5 December)
LongPen makes short work of distance (20 November)
Surfing the silver tsunami (19 November)
We are all temporal chauvinists now (13 September)
Politics or foresight (25 July)
Other regular contributors include Alexander Rose, Kevin Kelly, and Stewart Brand.
There is some worthwhile reading here for anyone concerned not only with cultivating the forward (futures) view, but with developing sensitivity to our macrohistorical context, the "long now" -- an antidote to the short now in which we otherwise tend to become trapped.
