Fast Company 50

Fast Company (FC) is a trade magazine that first described itself to be a cross between Harvard Business Review (HBR) and Rolling Stone. It was founded over a decade ago by two former editors who wanted to create content about entrepreneurs and make it more "hip" in its tenor.

Today, FC has moved more towards a cross between Business 2.0 and Wired, and more closely aligned with Red Herring, but with some HBS Working Knowledge flavor.

For the past 5 years, FC has been doing an annual issue entitled the Fast 50. To use their description, it is:

"...50 portraits from the future: people in business, technology, government, the arts, and beyond who are writing the history of the next 10 years. No, they aren't all heroes. Some are simply seizing an opportunity. But they're all smart, and they all tell you a lot about where we're heading. "

It is not a ranked list, but their thoughts on the top 50 movers and shakers.

Fast 50

I'm not certain I agree with their list but certainly it is interesting to read. Enjoy.
