Untitled[edit]

Slow Retail also seems to have little or nothing to do with the actual movement, seemingly added simply for a quick link. Thoughts? Opinions? TheGiftedOne 06:49, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

If it doesn't fit then I suggest you take it off. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Greycar (talkcontribs) 03:06, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

After reviewing the web site, "Slow Home," linked to in the "External Links" section, it appears that it has little to do with the genuine Slow Movement. It looks to me as if that site has merely appropriated the moniker from the Slow Food movement - and the Slow Movement in general - in order to lend itself a little cachet. I propose that the link to Slow Home be removed, as it is just another consumer-oriented web site and company, the very antithesis of the Slow Movement.

Slow home removed as per above request.

Could someone please give at least some sort of time frame for this movement? Dc2011 (talk) 03:19, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

slow money[edit]

Can someone please add slow money to this?

Thanks

Slow sex[edit]

User:Mindmatrix recently deleted an edit by an IP user which looks like vandalism, but actually isn't. It said:

"Slow Sex is a branch of the Slow Movement. It's an alternative to the fast-food sex that pervades our culture. Instead of using sex as an escape, we encourage people to feel into each nook and cranny of their sex. We find that by getting back to the basics of connecting to your body, being honest about your experience, and communicating with your partner, we can have sex that is more intimate and sensational."

I think that if this were written and referenced a bit better, it would be fine. Carl Honoré's book "In Praise of Slow" has a chapter on this. -- Rixs (talk) 06:52, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Could well be worth adding. There is a link to Slow Sex Movement, which is actually a redirect to a business called OneTaste.Jonpatterns (talk) 15:01, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Slow travel[edit]

Possibly related -- psychogeography. Might be of interest for Related. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.206.22.97 (talk) 11:20, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

Any order to the "Slow [fill-in-the-blanks]"?[edit]

The various types of offshoots of the Slow movement don't appear to be in any particular order, alphabetical, chronological, or topical. Engelhardt (talk) 04:23, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Not that I can tell, should there be? Theoretick (talk) 20:31, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Fixed: alphabetized. Regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:39, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Article name[edit]

I wonder if Slow (movement) or Slow (social movement) might be a better (more accurate) name for this article. Thoughts? Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:42, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
