LongNow - moving away from more cheaper and faster!

The Video kind of says it all:

Brian Eno as a musician and artist has provided much leadership, this TIME its different again:

"" The Long Now Foundation hopes to provide counterpoint to today's "faster/cheaper" mind set and promote "slower/better" thinking. We hope to creatively foster responsibility in the framework of the next 10,000 years. ""

For me it fits with "timely/sustainable" triple bottom line; Profit, People, Planet !

PS - WOW!!! Digging through the site above I got to one of the more interesting journeys you can do in just a few minutes, "the full evolution of man" from 15o,000 years ago until today which points to another interesting video on tracing our DNA out of africa : This makes you realise how short our existance is today.
