The Long Now: Seminars About Long-term Thinking, Nils Gilman: Deviant Globilization- May 3, San Francisco: The Long Now Foundation’s monthly Seminars were started in 2003 to build 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. Author Nils Gilman will speak about the hidden and powerful economy of “deviant globalization” that revolves around  human trafficking, drug dealing, gun running, cross-border waste disposal, organ trading, sex tourism, money laundering, transnational gangs, and piracy (both intellectual and physical).
