The Long Now Foundation's monthly series Seminars About Long-term Thinking
Wayne Clough is the 12th Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution. In July 1998 he took the reins of the world's largest museum and research complex and has since initiated long-range planning for the Smithsonian that includes increasing its accessibility.
Many of the 137 million objects in the Institution's collection will be digitized and made available to the public along with curatorial content produced by Smithsonian experts.
The purpose of the Seminars About Long-term Thinking is to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
Long Now Members can reserve 2 complimentary seats.
There will be a reception at The Long Now Museum & Store following the Seminar.
