Watch & share these talks on YouTube and Long Now
For almost two decades, Long Now has produced hundreds of talks from the world’s leading long-term thinkers—and it’s all possible because of the support of our members and donors. Now, we are showcasing a curated set of short Ignite Talks created and given by the Long Now Members themselves.
With thousands of members from all around the world, the Long Now community has a wide range of perspectives, stories, and experiences to offer. What's an Ignite talk? It's a story format created by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis that's exactly 5 minutes long, told by a speaker who's working with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds (ready or not).
These Ignite talks will range from geeky, fanciful, poignant, educational, with some fresh angles on long-term thinking - join us online for a fun and fast-paced event full of surprising and thoughtful ideas!Our Ignite Speakers and Their Talks:
We've moved our talks to a virtual format, and to share them with a wider audience, the live streams are now public on the Long Now Live Stream page and YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
We continue to release media from all of our talks and you can follow the series by subscribing to the podcasts, watching the videos and highlights and connecting with Long Now on our social channels.
Long Now is able to continue our work thanks to the ongoing support of members and donors. Please consider joining our global community of long-term thinkers. Membership starts at just $8/month and takes two minutes to set up. Special one-time donations are also appreciated, and all of your support will help us foster more long-term thinking. Thank you so much.
