Stewart Brand on Long Now's Nevada Clock Site

Back in November of 02004 Stewart Brand gave a very comprehensive talk at TED on our plans for the Nevada Clock site.  I had never seen it until TED talks posted it just recently.  Stewart talks through each aspect of our many years of site visits out there, and how we are looking at using the site.  Also if any of you have not seen his City Planet talk, that is also up on TED here.  In addition it looks like TED has followed our lead and is now using the crowd-sourced technology of DotSub to translate their online talks.
