Slow media is the future because it gives us back the feeling of time.
We used to have ‘time’ because there were fewer distractions, fewer text messages, and tweets, fewer podcasts, less music, less Kindle books.
Digital content is abundant and cheap, if not, mostly free.
Stopping to think, pausing to reflect, are also free BUT our focus is scarce.
Cramming more stuff into our brains isn’t necessarily better. Refreshing the streams is an endless hamster wheel of discovery. Add multitasking on top of that and it’s all a half-ass effort to pay attention.
The rhythm of time clings to our attention. Pick something and digest it.
One. Thing. At. A. Time.
