The Slow Media Manifesto

25 Jun

10. Slow Media are timeless: Slow Media are long-lived and appear fresh even after years or decades. They do not lose their quality over time but at best get some patina that can even enhance their value.

In a reaction to the daily dirge of rapidly pressed blog entries, endless twitter feeds, preposterous posterous posts and banal facebook updates The Slow Media Manifesto has emerged out of Germany, borrowing heavily from the Slow Food Movement.

Far from being the work of a Luddite, the Slow Media Movement seeks to preserve a degree of craft in a world of digital creation with the full manifesto making for interesting reading for anyone involved in online publishing of any kind.
