What is the Long Now Foundation?

The Long Now Foundation is a non-profit founded in 01996 and based in San Francisco, California, USA. To find out more about the organisation, their website is an excellent place to start. Long Now London have been meeting with varying degrees of frequency since 02010. We are inspired by the Foundation, we operate using their name with their blessing, but are otherwise independent. Our aim is to play our part in keeping the conversation going on this side of the planet. We are proud to be part of an archipelago of communities in EMEA time zones and around the world. If you are thinking of starting conversations where you are, we would love to hear from you.
