    A monthly seminar series, hosted by Stewart Brand, founder of The Long Now Foundation. The SALT seminars were started in 2003 with the aim of building "a compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking to help nudge civilization toward our goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare". The website includes podcasts from a wide range of speakers, including geneticist Craig Ventner, technologist Ray Kurzweil and musician Brian Eno. A recurring concern is the use of environmental resources, but all speakers, from whatever discipline, are encouraged to frame their thoughts with reference to the deep past and the deep future: ie. to look 10,000 years ahead to combat the short-term thinking that the Long Now Foundation sees as endemic in modern culture. The entire archive of podcasts is available and new seminars are streamed live. Video of the seminars is available to members of the Long Now Foundation.
