It’s Time for a “Slow Conversation” Movement – Anthony K. Tjan – Harvard Business Review

Another article in a growing list of articles and thinking on how to pull the technology pendulum back to a more balanced life that includes face-to-face interaction, creating experiences instead of only vicariously living through others and, dare I say it, actual analog time.

Ideas and thinking like this will become more important to business. It will help them understand how to get the attention of their audiences — internal and external — and how to retain for longer than a few seconds. It will also become important to each and everyone of us as we continue to long for more authentic interactions.

The grand prize in all of this is finding your balance between reality and technology that allows you always move at your optimum pace and happiness.

REI 1440 Project – Celebrating every minute spent outside

Screen Shot 2013-01-10 at 3.20.39 PM

Creative and fun new experience by REI.

The concept is to celebrate every minute spent outside. Users submit photos with the place and time they were shot. REI then adds them to the site in chronological order by the minute.

The hope is to create a minute-by-minute timeline of a full 24 hours of outdoor experiences through photos.

It’s a fun idea with cool interface. It’s definitely worth checking out!
