Fresh from the clogged tubes of teh intarwubs…

  1. The Slow Media Manifesto

    "The first decade of the 21st century, the so-called ‘naughties’, has brought profound changes to the technological foundations of the media landscape. The key buzzwords are networks, the Internet and social media. In the second decade, people will not search for new technologies allowing for even easier, faster and low-priced content production. Rather, appropriate reactions to this media revolution are to be developed and integrated politically, culturally and socially. The concept “Slow”, as in “Slow Food” and not as in “Slow Down”, is a key for this. Like “Slow Food”, Slow Media are not about fast consumption but about choosing the ingredients mindfully and preparing them in a concentrated manner. Slow Media are welcoming and hospitable. They like to share."

  1. Yes,the problem is quality and density of information.

    What good is high speed shallow garbage?

    All of these blogs with reviews of netbooks but so many netbooks are so much alike they aren’t worth the time to discuss. But if most people don’t understand what a gigabyte is then….

    We have vast information but little comprehension.
