“ The company's network is collapsing again , go to get information on a local beat 200 kb Less than a second ！ Who's going to fix the net ？”
“ I loaded a microblog page for half a minute ！WDNMD！（ It's inevitable that the net will break ）”
It's a kind of gentle and easy-going conversation , It happens almost every day in the editorial department . Have to say , Although the speed of writing is not fast , But my colleagues are very strict about the speed of the Internet .
After all, things like internet speed , Or as soon as possible .
But lately , A website enough to drive my colleagues crazy successfully attracted my attention , Because no matter how fast the Internet is , It will be a long time to wait for you . you 're right , It's the programmer's intention .
This website is called Slowww （ website ：slowww.ml ）, Just by name , This is a website that has nothing to do with fast . It was developed by a man named Terence Eden British programmers .
There's no big design element in the web page itself , To be exact , There are even some simple ones . All his content will be in seconds 175 The bit （ about 0.02 KB） The speed of loading .
This presentation , Let pepper feel that someone is crazy typing on the other end of the computer .
After the text crackles a few lines ,Eden use CSS ( Cascading style sheets ）, Make a page layout .
Of course! , Black and white text is not the whole page , Because in the end, something with a little color appeared —— picture .
But the loading speed of this picture is also surprisingly slow , After loading, you need 40 second .
As the typewriter moves on to the next line close to the truth , This blurred picture finally shows its true colors , It's a rabbit .
Finally, it will cost the whole page to load all the elements 6 minute . Don't ask how pepper knows , When I was pinching my watch ！
Although rabbit is very cute , But I have to admit , This website is a bit of a geek .
And what's interesting is that , This site is not a programmer Eden A boring prank to trick colleagues . It's that he thinks , Today's Internet is too fast .
Eden Want to use the web to express ： Sometimes , Fast is not a good thing .
In the 1990s , Man has developed rockets , Nuclear power and so on , But who can think of , The telephone and Internet couldn't be used at the same time at that time .
Eden I remember , When he first came into contact with the Internet , Click to open a web page , Turn around for a snack and come back , The page is just loaded . He will read every word on the web page , Take a closer look at each picture .
He felt that at that time , Surfing the Internet is still a very leisurely thing .
And now, with the speed of the Internet getting faster and faster , Countless pages , Massive content , Because you need to filter information , Surfing the Internet has become a very tiring thing .
Of course , The download speed of a certain Internet disk is still the retro flavor of young pepper , Always the same .
So he designed this performance art website , Only load per second 20 Characters , Use code to control your reading speed . Unless you've taken a quantum wave speed class , Otherwise, the efficiency of ordinary people's reading is almost the same .
Little chili also thinks , The speed of the Internet is getting faster , But the useful things didn't increase , Those useless information that distract people's attention instead get on the express train of the Internet , It's exhausting .
For example, if you are not an old netizen , Facing such a download page , I believe you still have a great probability of being cheated .
Eden Also think , The speed of network loading is far faster than that of human reading , In the face of overlord terms or phishing fraud Links , Most of the time, we haven't had time to fully understand , Just press OK .
Of course , This is just the first layer , What's more terrifying to pepper is , In the Internet age, many people are using your attention to make money . Using the fast of the information age , Making quick money .
It's like a marketing number needs to read 、 Short video numbers need to be played , A lot of content that had no dry goods served as the title party , It's consuming everyone's energy , With this rapid mass production , Turn your attention into money .
Little chili feels that those brainless title party and download link with virus , There is no difference in essence . After all, in the Internet age , This kind of fast money is best earned .
There are also many netizens who are afraid that they will lag behind a large number of troops , I spent all my unnecessary time and money on something I couldn't stick to for three months “ Trend ” On . They get lost on the information highway , Send the leeks to the door one after another .
There is one saying. , The first time I opened this page , Chili peppers are a little bit explosive . But calm down , Follow the cursor line by line ,6 It's still a matter of minutes .
I was also surprised to find that , I haven't read the next English article without such a punctuation for a long time .
However , Just when chili is ready to go to the website again to get some material , The bad thing is this Slowww Our experiments have been shut down , The original website also jumps directly to Eden The blog of .
Of course! , The meaning of pepper is not to persuade everyone to pull out the cable , Or back to the era of dial-up Internet access , With and Slowww The same snail network speed .
I want to be with Eden Just as a reminder ： Your time and attention , Very valuable , Slow down artificially , You may find that the world will be much quieter .
And Internet speed is something like that , Of course, the sooner the better .
Of course , The premise is to be the master of the tool , It's not a commodity alienated by the Internet .
