Two Modes of Thoughts
System 1: Fast,
System 2: Slow,
Really we able to enjoy?
Technological advances resulted in labour saving
devices for the home too. Nobody could deny the
advantages of micro wave oven, hot water systems,
flush toilet, or the bread maker, but have these
technologies really given us more time to enjoy
life as was their claim? Or have we used this time
to become even busier.
…is a worldwide movement to recapture Meaningful
Connection this state of connectedness. The
movement is gaining momentum, as more and more
people recognize their discomfort at the fast pace
and disconnected nature of their lives.
When McDonald’s planned to build a franchise outlet in
Rome in 1986, Carlo Petrini and his followers organized a
demonstration in which he eat bowls of pasta as weapons of
Their demonstration was successful and soon after, Carlo
founded the International Slow Food Movement which runs
counter to the fast food, fast life, non-sustainable food
production and the eroding of local economies.
What is slow food?
…aims to preserve cultural cuisine (preserve food
plants & seeds, domestic animals and farming within
an ecoregion). SFM has become a social and political
movement capable of resisting the dehumanizing
effects of large-scale, commercial food production and
the fast food industry.
What is slow travel?
opportunity to become part of local life and to connect
to a place and its people
ST is also about connection to culture.
What is slow cities?
…a way of life that supports people to live slow.
Traditions and traditional ways of doing things are
valued. These cities stand up against the fast-lane,
homogenized world so often seen in other cities
throughout the world. Slow cities have less traffic,
less noise, fewer crowds.
what is the
slow book movement?
Motivate readers to choose more substantive reading
material—serious literature that encourages thought
and that broadens self-awareness. Slow Books is
neither an pessimistic reaction to technology nor a
nostalgic desire for the past—meaningful works of
literature exist whether in electronic or print formats.
Rather, the point of slow reading is simply to
challenge minds and stimulate reflection—developing
readers’ ability to think critically and to form new

by the content delivered over the medium, but by the
characteristics of the medium itself..
medium affects the body and the psyche in relatively
unconscious ways; thus it is more powerful than the

Food is ‘cheap’ and
plentiful; eating is fueling

The explosion of
availability and great
quantity of information,
and how libraries
operate, suggest that
information is cheap and
plentiful, that searching,
evaluating and using
information is a race I
the finish line, that origin

‘Slow’ is not used in the contrast of ‘speed’
SLM provides a framework for fostering the growth of
sustainable libraries that will contribute in relevant and
SLM is most certainly not anti technology, digital
technology, especially OSS may be the tool to facilitate
different elements of SLM
There are six key elements of SLM as per Leggott :
Education, community, local, craftsmanship, people and
Encourage users to be
Education should be bidirectional, with librarians,
members from other professional and disciplines
Library should be open to learning from any and all
areas not just LIS
Foster involvement with and preservation of
community as a role for library
SLM stress the important of an outlook contextualized
by the particular community
Social tagging can involve the community
Advocate using local
tools and talent
Instead of paying high prices for services that are
inflexible and beyond the control of library use local
product or open source products
Staff can build and modify to meet the unique needs
of the library community
This requires commitment of staff training and time
(which our admintration are disinterested mostly)
The right components, features, and tools are
important ingredients in the creation of the best
Pay attention to
Library staff are more important than the technology
the create and use
OSS, Web and 2.0 are wonderful tools but cannot be
compared with the abilities and passion of the people
involved in the system
If we obtain pleasure from anything we value it.
As people are social increasing communication and
connection between library and community will lead to
