The campaign to fund The Long Now Salon continues! Please consider making a tax-deductible gift before the end of the year—to help us build a one-of-a-kind space. We are proud to count Neil Gaiman, Esther Dyson, Michael Pollan, Chris Anderson, and Neal Stephenson amongst the many donors and fans of this project.— Tim O’Reilly (@timoreilly)
Donors get some distinctively Long Now styled thank you’s. Including special flasks for whiskey or for tea. Magical Challenge Coins. Okay, not magical. But very cool. Rare whiskey and gin only available in bottles at Long Now to those who help us fund the Salon. There’s also a rare aged Pu-erh tea. There’s more details here.
The Long Now Salon will open in 02014 in San Francisco as a public space that is the new home for smaller Long Now events. In the beautifully designed interior we will serve delicious artisan coffee & tea and sensational spirits & cocktails. All within sight of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Please spread the word!
The Salon will feature ambient sound and a light-painting installation by Brian Eno. And a crowd-curated library called The Manual for Civilization which donors to the Salon (at any level starting at $10) can help us select.
We appreciate your attention in every way, whether you can give or you listen and enjoy our podcasts. Thanks for your interest in Long Now!
