The Long Now Foundation presents Seminars About Long-term Thinking
Joining 3.5 Billion Years of Microbial Invention with Craig Venter

Few people in history have expanded the capabilities of science and technology as profoundly as J. Craig Venter. Life on Earth is about to be fundamentally altered by the creation of a totally synthetic organism, an artificial species genetically encoded from scratch by scientists working under Dr. Venter. Do not miss what he has to say about the implications of this watershed moment.

The purpose of the Seminars About Long-term Thinking series 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.
