4.0 out of 5 stars Back on track... February 15, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
A ground-breaking magazine when it first came out, Fast Company kind of fell apart after the Dot-Com bubble. It was almost like they stopped employing journalists. Now it seems to be finding its way again by focusing on leadership, entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity rather just on the latest technology craze (there are blogs for that). This is a worthwhile subscription to have if you are interested in what's happening now and what's next in today's information economy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Current opinion of Fast Company February 21, 2012
By RDP
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I recently canceled my subscription to Fast Company. I receive more magazines than I probably should and Fast Company was always the one I would get around to if I finished all the others. Although Fast Company has had some pretty interesting articles, I just can't stand reading an article or reading up to their constant fascination of the 'war between Apple vs. Facebook' or any of the other battles between larger tech companies. Who cares. Those articles become very stale and unoriginal. Fast Company is like the groupie for the dot coms or tech sector, whenever a small company like Zynga comes around, they think they're going to transform the world. They also have a lot of lists, which also gets tiresome. Their list of creative people issue pretty much takes up the whole issue, leaving nothing but some short descriptions of people. I don't want to completely bash the magazine because they occasionally do produce an interesting article [...] being one of them. Also, I am a big fan of the infographics they have on their website. Since my feelings are somewhat mixed about Fast Company I would say it would be a good one to just pick up at the stand from time to time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Journalism August 12, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Fast Company is a magazine that focuses on recent trends in business and technology from a very socially-conscious point of view. The design and format of the magazine are very appealing, and before I subscribed to it I would regularly browse it at "Borders" or "Barnes and Noble." Since I am a gadget freak, the section on the latest products and tools was always one of my favorites. The magazine tends to focus a lot on the persons behind the headlines, regularly profiling many of the industrial movers and shakers. Oftentimes, however, persons that they choose to profile are of dubious distinction at best, and the articles about them have a very strong puff-piece feel to them. On top of that, the companies seem to be eager to ascertain their socially-conscious bona fides by appearing in a positive light in this magazine, so there is also a strong sense of articles coming across as if written in conjunction with corporate PR machines. Nevertheless, the quality of writing for the most part is pretty high, and there are many interesting and stimulating stories that are worthwhile reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-boring Business Magazine. May 7, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I really enjoy this publication. It puts marketing and growth strategies within reach of those of us who fall asleep reading other business Mags. I've learned a ton and have been able to bring some of what I've learned to my job. It also helps consumers understand the marketing forces being put into play to capture their loyalty and their dollar.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the few innnovative mags left March 8, 2009
By Dave
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
along with WIRED, i feel that Fast Company is one the few maverick publications left in this merger and recession world. Even if you don't agree with the articles or predictions, at least every one is well-thought out and INTERESTING.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helps keep you on top of trends and new ideas December 22, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I started reading Fast Company at a friends house and I was sold. The magazine focuses on the new trends that are going on and promise to shape the next two to five years. Here's a sample:

There's a mechanic in Kansas (?) who tweaks Hummers to get over 75 mpg AND ramps up their horse power. The crazy part? Most of the parts he uses is off the shelf and Detroit could be doing it today.

There is a video game control that should be out by the end of 2008 that you will wear on your head and it will read your brain patterns to determine if you go left or right.

IBM has taken their top mathematicians out of the think tank and added them to their consulting services. The mathematicians get real world applications from the source, the consultants get more ideas.

I could go on. If nothing else, it's fun to read about where things are headed. It also provides great discussion starters for parties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine! March 27, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
When "Business 2.0" stopped being published last year, I was very disappointed since I didn't know of another magazine like it. I think "Fast Company" fits the bill and am excited to find that it's loaded with articles about "the new" in the business world and in the tech sector. The latest issue has a story about the top 50 up-and-coming companies, with Google being number one. What an interesting piece about their corporate culture and some of the people who work there! I hope they keep up the good work and that they don't fall into a black hole as "Business 2.0" did. I like having something I can hold in my hands when I'm reading. I know I can find out a lot of this stuff one way or another on the Web, but when I curl up in bed at night, I like to have a magazine or book in my hands, not a laptop... I am looking forward to the arrival of the next issue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced September 23, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Reading this magazine is like riding a roller coaster -- fast and furious. You're anxious opening a new issue, engaged throughout, and breathless when it's over. It's packed with ideas and inspiration, especially for entrepreneurs and anyone running a growing company. Not for the faint-of-heart.
