The Conversations at The Interval
Interval events are lectures and discussions about topics including art, design, history, nature, technology, and time. They take place on Tuesday nights a couple times a month and feature artists, authors, entrepreneurs, scientists, and others who take a long-term perspective.
Below you'll find information about upcoming and previous talks. All events are recorded and will eventually be released. There is video and audio of a selection of our past talks on this site. We also have nearly 200 videos in our Seminar series which you can watch for free.

The Interval at Long Now: check-in starts at 12 noon. The talk will begin @ 12:30pm.

Fall, or Dodge in Hell is pure, unadulterated fun: a grand drama of analog and digital, man and machine, angels and demons, gods and followers, the finite and the eternal. In this exhilarating epic, Neal Stephenson raises profound existential questions and touches on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Combining the technological, philosophical, and spiritual in one grand myth, he delivers a mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age.
Neal Stephenson is the bestselling author of the novels Reamde, Anathem, The System of the World, The Confusion, Quicksilver, Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, and Zodiac, and the groundbreaking nonfiction work "In the Beginning...Was the Command Line." He lives in Seattle, Washington.
Tickets typically go on sale to Long Now members two weeks in advance and then to the public. Most talks sell out quickly due to our small capacity. "Patron tickets" are usually available after other tickets sell out. They include a reserved seat and are partially tax deductible.
Talk begins at 12:30pm; we recommend arriving earlier for more seating options. The Interval reopens to the public by 2pm. (All times are in Pacific Time)
A live videostream of most talks is available. Each talk is free for Long Now members at http://longnow.org/live
