More Long Now Clockery


If you were intrigued by my previous post about the Clock of the Long Now, I came across a nice, philosophical and instructive article about it: 


"But even if the Clock of the Long Now fails to last ten thousand years, even if it breaks down after half or a quarter or a tenth that span, this mad contraption will already have long since fulfilled its purpose.


Indeed the Clock may have accomplished its greatest task before it is ever finished, perhaps without ever being built at all." (from The Omega Glory by Michael Chabon)


Read it.
