"My new quest in life is to create a slow photography movement, not unlike the slow food movement. I’ve noticed a somewhat alarming trend in recent years, especially during 2011/12. Yesterday as I made my way home along a slow, winding dirt road in central Vermont I listened to a story on NPR about campaign ads, most specifically online ads. The report stated that during the ’08 campaign YouTube viewers watched 1 billion minutes of Obama campaign videos online, that’s a collective 2,000 years worth! The point was that media is being generated and consumed at an unprecedented rate and volume and in the case of advertising can be modified and redistributed rapidly depending on effectiveness using real time data."
