This chapter reflects on technology and its relationship with time and human limits, including whether there are any limits in cyberspace. ICT is now developing very fast. It is modifying both human beings’ ways of doing things as well as who they are as people. Similarly, how human beings perceive time has also recently been changing rapidly. People are undertaking many more tasks in swift succession and in parallel. People find these changes in behaviour highly demanding. These rapid changes can actually act as an encouragement to think about the very opposite of speed. A set of Slow Tech guidelines can help human beings to live at a pace that is more responsive to, and reflective of, their needs. By following such guidelines, people can learn to design, and handle with care, the incredible forms of power that lie in their hands—this aim is a crucial one if people desire to preserve the planet on which they live.
