This Site has everything you would want of a great community site of theÂ second generation. A job very well done! What I very much appreciate is that IÂ am not bombarded with advertising on every page, and the ads are are notÂ animated/video ads, that flicker in front of my eyes and I am able toÂ concentrate on the content – very much a plus. Now I just discovered that I am ableÂ to create my own blog on the fastcompany.com domain, which I find quiteÂ generous. The â€œbetaâ€ in front makes it bit geeky, and for a techie like me,Â there is no downside to it. (Google had their Gmail site in beta for aboutÂ three years, before they went public with it, hadnâ€™t they?)
After about five month intensive explorations on Facebook I am now relievedÂ that I am again allowed to keep my business content organized on one site.Â Bookmarks, newsletters, feeds, and contacts: everything is about business, businessÂ technology, business ideas. Now these things donâ€™t intermingle anymore with myÂ private and semi-private and my charity interests like they do now onÂ del.icio.us or on Facebook. I still am very much able to have them â€˜bleedâ€™Â through by using the feeds but the collections and the administration is now
separate. And I very much like that. Fast Company I like that the â€œCompany ofÂ Friendsâ€ are back! Thank you! And this Blog will not only be about Web 2.0,Â which many people still have not embraced yet, but also about how Fast CompanyÂ is a major player in shaping Web 2.0 for business people of Gen X and Y and
hopefully a bit of the Boomers, too.
