Live Audio Streaming for the Seminars About Long-term Thinking

For over seven years, Long Now has been producing the monthly Seminars About Long-term Thinking in San Francisco. The series was started in order to build a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking and through those ideas, to help nudge civilization toward our goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.

Long Now Foundation Members attend these lectures for free, and over the years, it has been encouraging to see a community develop around hearing, discussing, critiquing and implementing this body of ideas. As our membership has grown, however, so has its geographic distribution and we now have members in many countries all over the world.

In order to better serve our further afield supporters, we’re introducing Live Audio Streaming of the Seminars for Members of The Long Now Foundation.

Using time and bandwidth donated by Stream Guys (thanks!), we’re able to provide live streaming audio of the speaker’s talk. Additionally, a service called CoverItLive allows us to share the presentation slides and provide a forum to discuss the lecture in real-time with other Members. Through this interface, Members can also submit questions for the speaker and follow discussion of the event on Twitter.

Our next Seminar features Australian ecologist Tim Flannery on May 3rd and if you can’t make it in person – no sweat! Just tune in to longnow.org/live at 7:00 PM PST and join the conversation!
