I was visiting my new friend Nicolai when I glanced through his July issue of Fast Company, and whaddayaknow: I’m in it! Fast Company is an extremely cool magazine. Okay, they’ve been marked by the dismal economic trends too, and their cool factor is slipping slightly, but they’re still light years in front of any other business magazine I know.
And I’m in the july issue! Well… it’s only a letter to the magazine, but still. I wrote a comment to an article that says that we need to reconstruct business to be less vulnerable to terrorist attacks. I argue, that it’s probably better to meet your enemies with understanding and empathy than with duct tape. So now that I’ve been in the mag, I have to choose a new ambition… hmmm… Oh yeah: To get on the cover of Fast Company.
And in a totally unrelated but equally ego-flattering development, I’m now a top1000 reviewer at Amazon; I’m actually number 599, set to break into the top500 soon. Check out some of my reviews here, here and here. You know Amazon have a good thing going, when this actually means something to me. Now: Are they very clever, or am I just a pushover?
