Fast Company's 100 "Most Creative People in Business"

Fast Company released their list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business, and I made it on the list!!!! (barely)

When we got the magazine and started flipping through it to find where I was on the list of 100, it was like a scene in a sitcom. Tracy, my very capable assistant, started flipping through the list. I wasn't surprised not to be in the Top 10, or even the Top 30, but we breezed through the 40's and 50's, sailed through the 60's and flew past the 70's.

In a moment right out of the Honeymooner's, I finally hit Tracy (my Norton) in the arm and yelled, "Come on!! Start from the back!!"

YES! #98!!!

I'm still very pleased.

Actually, I've been reading Fast Company for a long time, and it is a real honor to be in a list with so many visionaries. One of my earliest posts was on an article FC did with Jonathan Ive (who is at the top of this year's list) on the emotional response to design. The article is still available online and I still think it's one of the best design articles I have read.

Blogger ita darling. said ... (6:28 PM) : 

I saw you on the list when I got my most recent issue! I have loved FC for years and I am constantly amazed that more people don't know about it... The upside of it being unknown- the articles make for awesome conversation starters at dinners and bars- and its not like NYT where everyone rolls their eyes and says "I read that article too"... I try to promote it all the time so that it doesn't find itself in the publication graveyard like so many other magazines... anyway. I digress- Congrats Mr. S!


Blogger Celia said ... (6:29 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 PM) : 

You take very nice photos, are (or seem) like a very nice guy, and clearly have talent. But the reality is that you hit a niche at the right time, creativity is the operant word to describe your success, let alone "most creative." I love your blog and follow it daily. You have always show humility and balance, but seem lacking today.

Anonymous awebber said ... (11:25 PM) : 

that's my fathers magazine. (meaning he was the founder and it was his baby.) I (although perhaps obviously,) am a HUGE fan of FC and I'm thrilled to see your name on its list. It has much more real and genuinely influential people in it then many of its competitors. congrats. well deserved.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:31 AM) : 

First and foremost, congratulations! :)

second, i am currently taking on a design course -"profession and theory" and I am very interested in the article with Jonathan Ive, have tried to look it up.

Do you have a link? :S

thanks in advance,
