This chapter describes Slow Tech ideas that are directed mainly towards young engineers: it investigates what are some of the main influences on the professionals who are developing information technology. It is a chapter that can be of special support to industrialists and people working in the commercial sector.
Today’s greater awareness of complexity is contrasted with the engineering focus on reductionism. In complete contrast to the reductionist approach, several new initiatives may instead be helpful to young people who are launching their careers at the start of the twenty-first century—particularly, the approach of responsible research and innovation and computer ethics. Currently, a Slow Tech approach to information technology is needed, an approach that recognises the complexity of multiple, interconnected systems. In this chapter examples of applications and real case studies that illustrate the Slow Tech approach are provided. The first of these is the new technology of cloud computing. The cases that follow illustrate the progress of three different companies that have each, in its own way, applied Slow Tech ideas, over several decades since the 01960s but more prominently during the last decade: they are Olivetti and Loccioni from Italy and Fairphone from the Netherlands. The fact that these case studies come from real companies implies the start of a discussion with several groups of stakeholders.
