The future thinking organization The Long Now Foundation recently launched their new Membership Program. They are a total of 1000 charter membership slots, only 357 of which have been filled as of today, so there is still an opportunity for you to become one of the original charter members. Becoming a Long Now member helps to fund their various projects, provides access to high quality online video of their Seminars via FORA.tv and many other benefits. When you join as a charter member they send you a beautiful stainless steel membership card engraved with your charter member number.
The Long Now Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of our new Membership Program. By joining, you’ll be supporting Long Now’s projects like the Seminar series, the Clock and digital preservation.
With membership, you’ll have access to our high-quality Seminar videos in a new large format player with chaptering and searchable full-text transcripts – a great way to stay in touch with the Seminar series if you are not able to attend in person.
We’ll also be keeping members up to date with in-depth articles on Long Now projects.
There are only 1,000 Charter Memberships available, which come with the individually numbered stainless steel Charter Member card and admission for one the the U.S. Premiere of Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings which will be held in San Francisco this summer.
Of course our Membership Program will continue after the Charter Memberships have all been taken – we look forward to it continuing for many lifetimes.
Based in San Francisco, The Long Now Foundation was created in 01996 with a focus on long-term, cultural thinking over the next 10,000 years. Notable board members include Stewart Brand, Brian Eno, Danny Hillis, Mitch Kapor, Kevin Kelly and Esther Dyson. In addition to their amazing Seminar series, Long Now projects include the 10,000 Year Clock, Rosetta Project, the Long Server and Long Bets.
Last summer The Long Now Foundation opened their new public space at Fort Mason in San Francisco. Here are some photos I shot at their opening event.
