Each week, three links I think are worth reading. Less is more.

Empathy Drifting Woodsman
The End of Empathy
Drifting, by Tariq Krim
Revue is unfortunately choking on the Facebook note link, although it is available publicly (even if you don’t have a Facebook account). So here it is: Drifting.
What Tariq talks about here is part of the reason I still write on my blog. I have felt disenchanted about the “ever faster” trend pretty much forever – speed is not something that drew me to the web, beyond a certain point. 
Again, the other day, I was telling a client about how slow it is to actually build things of value online: relationships, trust, communities. 
I also agree with Tariq, if I interpret what he is saying here correctly, that there is something “wrong” with an industry that exploits weakness in people: that is what tools going for “addictiveness” are doing.
