Jack Chenge writes on The Slow Web Movement.
“Timely not real-time. Rhythm not random. Moderation not excess. Knowledge not information. These are a few of the many characteristics of the Slow Web. It’s not so much a checklist as a feeling, one of being at greater ease with the web-enabled products and services in our lives.”
OK, that’s the sentiment and maybe, just maybe, the start of a Movement.
Question is now, where are the other 148 “Tippers” going to come from?
I was doing “slow web” before the term was even conceived, but I’m glad to see it getting some traction now. Hopefully it encourage people to slow down and do some real living rather than the non-stop virtual living many are doing. Of course it is always a choice and not everyone will choose to slow down.
OMG. Thank. You. Exactly what I needed to read right now.
Obviously, we need a Slow Web list to track Slow Web companies
Great essay. It’s unfortunate that our economic system and culture conflates “faster” with “better.”
