The Clock of the Long Now is a portrait of Danny Hillis and his brilliant team of inventors, futurists, and engineers as they build The 10,000 Year Clock—a grand, Stone Henge-like monolith, being constructed in a mountain in West Texas.
The film, like the clock itself, celebrates the power of long-term thinking and mankind’s insatiable thirst to solve life’s biggest problems.

During our trip to Melbourne, with the help of Maribeth, we found the story of Dave Jacka, one of the most inspiring people I've ever met. He could teach us all something about the power of the mind and in setting goals. And, oh ya, he's quadriplegic with only about 6% of his body function.
Dave's full story as well as an exploration of goal-setting are all explored on the blog. Want to know how the NBA all-time leader in free throw percentage achieved a remarkable 90.4% success rate? Or how the seemingly impossible 4 minute mile took hundreds of years to surpass, yet the moment it was broken, 37 people broke it in the following year.
