Fast Company is one of the leading voices for progressive business, or ethical economics, (or "ethonomics" as they call it). The site also focuses on innovation, leadership and design. Founded in 1995 by two former Harvard Business Review editors, Alan Webber and Bill Taylor, the site recognizes that business is not only changing, but it's changing the world. Fast Company hopes to "showcase the teams and individuals who are inventing the future and reinventing business."
Fast Company has positioned itself as an education resource for its readers. With features like the "30 Second MBA", it's almost as though they're helping ensure future business leaders and innovators. Recently, Matt Damon was featured here and answered: "What Have You Learned From Failure?" and "Is There A Business Case for Generosity?" This type of interactive feature breathes fresh air into business reporting and truly gives Fast Company more of a conversation tone.
But it's also a news site. This week, I read about a new social media startup called Percolate on Fast Company. I also read about the world's first 3-D chocolate printer and a machine that makes pencils out of art-school waste. Truthfully, I could link to very cool stories and posts on Fast Company all day. But in the interest of time, why not bookmark it and take a look around yourself.
