Happy Holidays!

I cannot speak for my fellow FC Now contributors and teammates, but I do know that I’ll be out of the office — and offline — Dec. 23 to Jan. 3 for the holidays. We’ve lined up a good holiday week’s worth of FC content for the home page, and our newsletters will continue apace.

An additional note: We have disabled FC Now comments for the duration of the holiday break to combat an expected influx of comment spam. While out of the office, we cannot keep up with deleting and blacklisting comment spam — and we shudder to think what we’d find upon our return. FC Now readers will be able to leave comments as usual Jan. 4 at the latest.

On behalf of the entire Fast Company team, may you and yours have the happiest of holidays. See you in 2005!
