Raising the speed limit on slowness

Here at 19 Minutes World Media Headquarters, we recently interviewed journalist/author Carl Honoré about his thought-provoking book, "In Praise of Slowness." A couple of ironies about that interview: a) For an author who's become an expert in the so-called "Slow Movement", he's an amazingly fast talker; and b) I'm now on a pretty tight deadline to get the interview edited and ready for air.

All this to say, I'll be back when the edits are, uh, edited.

In the meantime, if you're at all into Scottish/Celtic music, you can check out an interview we recently did with the band "Old Blind Dogs" here. And, Catherine Seipp's NPR commentary about why she blogs is engaging, and perhaps worth a listen. It does sort of play into the media's fascination with All Things Blog, but at least it keeps us off drugs.
