Increasing challenges are facing the information society, particularly in terms of its sustainability and continuity. Humanbeings are finding it more and more difficult to cope with the accelerating speed of information and communicationtechnologies (ICT). Society has been seduced by a rapid pace of development of ICT, progressively celebrated year onyear for its growing speed and power. This reflection paper proposes a new way of thinking about ICT in the future: aslower, more careful, more considered, and more ethical manner (a slow tech approach). It concentrates on the need forslow tech: ICT that is good, clean, and fair. It then provides some additional reflections on how such an approach couldbe developed further.
