David Byrne has become a scholar and promoter of new good ideas that work in 
the world.

He finds them in health, education, culture, economics, climate, science & 
technology, transportation, and civic engagement.  He has great examples and 
great slides--as you might expect from an acclaimed visual as well as musical 
artist.  His goal is to spread the word that there are a LOT of new things that 
work surprisingly well, and they can be applied far and wide.

He has also delved into history for “sleeping beauties”—brilliant ideas that 
got overlooked or forgotten but can be revived.  He’s interested in how that 
rediscovery process works and can be made better.

Now 67, David Byrne’s prolific artistic career has earned honors including the 
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards.  Most 
famed for his new-wave band “Talking Heads” (1975-1991), Byrne continues to 
perform music on the road and has made numerous films, books, and graphic art 
works.  He frequently collaborates with Long Now board member Brian Eno.
