Brian Eno is a musician, composer, record producer, installation artist, and author. As a founding board member, he named The Long Now Foundation and the Clock of the Long Now. He has worked closely with Danny Hillis on the Clock’s chime generator—developing the concept and the actual bells which will ring differently every day for 10,000 years.
As the Executive Director of The Long Now Foundation, Alexander Rose founded The Interval and has facilitated projects such as the 10,000 Year Clock, The Rosetta Project, Long Bets, Seminars About Long Term Thinking, Long Server and others. Alexander speaks about the work of Long Now all over the world at venues ranging from the TED conference to corporations and government agencies.
Long Finance aims to “improve society’s understanding and use of finance over the long-term”, in contrast to the short-termism that defines today’s financial and economic views. The immediate objective of the initiative is to establish a Foundation that can ignite global debate on long-term finance, by examining how commerce should enable and encourage environmental and social sustainability.
In February 02010, Brian Eno, Stewart Brand, and Alexander Rose spoke at the Long Finance conference hosted by Gresham College in London. The conversation was moderated by Faisal Islam, an economics correspondent with Channel 4 news in the UK.
