These are my thoughts on the subject.

The term has been around since early in this decade, but not because it was unknown before, just the opposite.
Photography has always been slow, from the very beginning up to the recent past, when it hugely accelerated and massively changed, forever. The shift started as technical at first but evolved affecting our very understanding of the trade, the way we think and feel about it, and lastly, how we go about practising it.
Digital made photography accessible to everyone, made it possible to work fast and cheap, and led in the end to the explosion of images being taken every moment, everywhere, for any reason—for no reason at all.
Photography has become fast by custom, by habit, and eventually by definition. This called for a new name to the old tradition, hence "slow photography".
I think the name is misleading. I photograph slow because my camera uses film, has manual focus and no zoom lens—I don't have a choice. On the other hand, this is regardless. I would still give a thought before pressing the shutter.
Digital photography and slow photography are not mutually exclusive. In particular, landscape photography and slow photography are a natural match, no matter what medium is in place.
As a landscape photographer, you are in a favourable position. Your subject is not going to vanish within seconds. Relax, take your time, and switch your camera's continuous mode off, for a change.
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do you think getting started is the hardest part? There is so much to learn. There are so many different opinions and know-alls around. There is so much noise, that you feel it difficult to find the truth...
Do you believe getting better is even harder? Now you know your stuff and can tell good from so-so. You sense that your images are often so-so, but you don't see how you can improve, what to work on and pay attention to...
