Let’s value diversity in media habits and practices

Just as our soil is enriched  by growing lots of different things in different ways instead of having a monoculture, our society is enriched when we have a rich, diverse environment of print and digital media.

Your media choices—among an enormous range of apps, programs, platforms, devices, networks—depend on your life circumstances: how old you are, the nature of your job, whether you have a family, how old your kids are, your friends’ and parents’ and employers’ and kids’ communications preferences, whether you live in an urban or suburban or rural area, and much more.

Just as we respect differing beliefs about politics or religion, we could appreciate and accommodate various stances toward media technologies, including both fast and Slow ones.
