• Fast Company Roadshow 2002 - While Fast Company (the magazine) has over time, in my opinion, lost a bit of its early assumption-busting character, and is tending to focus more on people than ideas than my taste would like, I still read it. And beyond the magazine, a community has grown in both cyberspace as well as in meatspace. Local chapters of a reader's network known as the "Company of Friends" have grown in a wide range of locales. The link above is to the diary of one of the magazine's editors, Heath Row (not the airport - that is his name), as he visits a set of meetings of these local groups on the East Coast. There's interesting comentary on values, a topic that has recently developed cachet in business, as well as on a range of organizations participting in the companies of friends, ranging from the Department of Defense in Virginia to a community theatre in New Jersey. If you're a fan of Fast Company or not, it's worth a read.
