The Slow Web Groovy Or Fast Web Frenzy

Make Haste Slowly

The Slow Web Movement has captured my imagination and is ushering me towards an ever-evolving realization.

But they are not all created equal in their potency or effectiveness. Nor will just any story told any-which-way enhance the delivery and a solid landing of your marketing message. Which ones are worthy? How will you tell yours in a way that supports the clarity of your message rather than dissipating or distracting from it?
