Telling the time for 10,000 years.

Another link found on Boing Boing: The Long Now Foundation has an online store. It's not your usual t-shirts and tat - this store sells bristlecone pine cones, and bits of the Clock and prototypes of the Library. Of course there's also a shop where you can buy more affordable things, but the limited edition section is just so wonderful I had to share it...

The Equation of Time Cam is a wonderful piece that shows how science and technology can be art. It's intended to handle solar deviations and make sure that the Clock stays on time.

Now if only LJ let us post times in Long Now format. 02002 is a much better way of showing that we are part of a continuum - that 2002 is not the end of time, just another step on the march through history.
