Boing Boing points out a nice Eno quote from an old interview: “The advantage the popular arts have is that they are not ideologically proud.”

I also meant to post a link to Eno’s talk at a Long Now seminar a few months ago. But now that I’ve started to think in 10,000 year spans, who cares about a few measly months? Seriously, it’s kind of an interesting project. Some of the mid-90′s Wired-magazine-esque wankerdom can get a little self-important and overinflated, but I’m definitely attracted to something that aims to shake modern people out of their temporal myopia and chronic amnesia. It’s the same impulse that led me to that ol’ history degree.
