Developing a contemplative approach to computing is not easy or fast: it requires unlearning old habits and ways of thinking, as well as learning new ones. In other words, it's slow. But as the Lift Experience shows us, contemplation and slowness, and technology, are not necessarily incompatible. We normally associate “slow” with age or infirmity or even incompetence; speed is its moral opposite, a sign of high energy and performance. But while it might be bad in computers or organizations, in the human realm it's more often a sign of skill, mastery and experience.
