Slow Journalism « PREV | NEXT »: Counter-quibble

November 18, 2008

A Quick Quibble ...

... with John Rockwell's Slow Journalism post, below.

Maybe the pressure of the Internet -- the desire to put the post up -- foiled you somehow, John, because I don't believe you meant to suggest that Internet journalism is dishonorable, which is how one could read your last sentence: "Either way, it is very much the opposite of the honorable, salutary, quaint or Luddite aspirations of the slow folk."

Or did you mean that the pressure for speed is dishonorable? It's highly dangerous, sure, and there's more of that pressure than there's ever been. But dishonorable? I think that's a step too far.

So this post is mainly just to ask: What did you mean?

Think of it as a speed bump.
