Slow sell

In our algorithmic age, speed and convenience are seen as the drivers of success.

Overnight delivery becomes same day delivery becomes 3-hour delivery becomes instant delivery. Technology is acceleration writ large.

Each leap in computing and processing power pushes everything faster. But natural and biological systems work to a different rhythm, a different hue. Live fast and die young is no way to get through life.

Maybe it’s time for a slow technology movement. Artisanal axes anyone?

Instead of a fast sell like everyone else predicated on hurry hurry hurry, perhaps a slow sell that gradually entices people.

Not the fast and the furious.

The calm and the collected.
