Regarding “Slow Journalism”

Over at Nieman Reports, Michael Blanding argues for it’s Value…in the Age of Instant Information.

Referencing Paul Salopek’s Out of Eden Walk project, Mr. Blanding explains “Though many of the principles of slow journalism aren’t new, the idea has taken on fresh urgency. It shares characteristics with narrative journalism, especially the emphasis on immersive reporting.

Other aspects include; the use of “engaged time“/”attention” metrics, transparency of process and non-traditional funding models (philanthropy, subscriptions, memberships etc.).
