Stewart Brand just sent out a heads-up on the next Long Now Seminar:
The next Seminar About Long-term Thinking, on Oct. 5, will be unusual in important ways. The main difference is that making a phone or email reservation is the best way to ensure getting a seat. The problem is a very attractive event in a very restricted venue. The Fort Mason Conference Center only seats 310, but many more than that may want to see Freeman Dyson, Esther Dyson, and George Dyson together for the first time on a public stage, discussing "The Difficulty of Looking Far Ahead." So:
To ensure a seat for the Wednesday Oct. 5 talk at Fort Mason Conference Center, you'll need to call or email Simone Davalos at Long Now--- 415-561-6582; firstname.lastname@example.org--- and leave your name. At the event we'll try to find seats for standbys, and there's a not-too-bad option of standing room outside the windows.
I've added a sub-section to the Salon ride-sharing board for SALT as well, so please check it if you plan to attend and would be interested in carpooling.
