Danny Hillis, Stewart Brand, and other members of the Long Now Foundation are designing a 65-foot-high mechanical clock
designed to keep time for 10,000 years. (Previous Long Now posts here

Just what will that future hold?
"By and large, all predictions are wrong," Stewart cautions. "I don't think we would much care for a world so rigidly ordered that predictions would regularly prove true."
