Another media culture is possible

Slow Media, like Slow Food, encourages people to reassess consumer culture, to conserve natural resources, to resist commodification, to fight standardization, and to preserve traditional tastes.

Slow Media is useful for thinking about long-term sustainability because it foregrounds problems such as mass manufacturing, disposability, planned obsolescence, and superficial measures of efficiency.

Print, analog and other nondigital forms of Slow Media provide a glimpse of another culture that was, is, and will be possible—a culture guided by the quality of human lives.
