On Slowness

Slowness as a movement is about the idea that to be fast, you first have to be slow and get things right.

The seeming acceleration of just about every facet of modern life seems to be such that if you blink you miss something.

A growing number of people are deciding to opt out, downshift or otherwise "go with the slow" in order to take back their time.  There is even a growing slow food movement and a renewed interest in handcraft movements.

It has also been argued that procrastination and delay improve the quality of knowledge, collaboration and understanding.
