Daniel Suarez (aka author Leinad Zeraus) presents
Daemon: Bot-mediated Reality

Under a pseudonym, database consultant Daniel Suarez self-published Daemon, a near-term sci-fi novel about a computer virus intent on destroying civilization. It's success has been based heavily on its ability to walk the line between technical feasibility and fantastic storytelling, as well as the prescient warning implicit in its portrayal of our tech dependent culture.

The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 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.
