reply to https://colet.space/slow-tech-movement/ I really like this idea comparing our usage of giant corporate social networks like Facebook to consumption of factory-farmed meat and produce… Where the “slow food” movement replaces a bit of convenience for more ethical, local, and even tastier food, perhaps the “slow tech” movement could do the same for the technology in our daily lives; a personal website might look strange, have some bugs, and be a bit slow, but it doesn’t support giant corporations that are working to gain control over our interactions with the internet… and it puts control of personal data back into our own hands.
Yet another person talking about slow tech / slow social.
