The Goop-est Thing About Gwyneth Paltrow's New Clothing Line Isn't The Clothes

fastcompany.com — Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow debuted the first item in her new Goop-label clothing line, and as happens whenever Goop releases something high-profile, her efforts were greeted with excitement by some, mockery by others. The first outfit in the collection is pretty standard Gwyneth, a conservative classic with a twist: a chambray button-down shirt and a white tote, and a gray tweed suit with a tie-belt and culotte-cut pants.

Can American Apparel's CEO Mend Its Seams?

fastcompany.com — Everything seems normal as we approach American Apparel's seven-story factory and corporate headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. I'm riding shotgun next to CEO Paula Schneider in her slightly worn electric Ford Fusion, '80s music jamming quietly from the speakers. We park and enter the light and orderly American Apparel shop on the ground floor.

Facebook Launches New Discovery Tool For Groups

fastcompany.com — Facebook Groups are about to become a lot easier to find. The social network has begun piloting a new Groups Discover tool, which makes it easier for users to find new Groups to join, based on their interests. The new feature is rolling out on iOS and Android in the U.S.

Zac Posen Is Ready for His Close-Up

fastcompany.com — It's not easy to catch the fashion world off guard. But when Zac Posen announced two years ago that he was signing on as the creative director of women's wear at Brooks Brothers, one of America's oldest retailers, he raised more than a few well-groomed eyebrows.

Behind The Scenes At Karlie Kloss's New Coding Camp For Girls

fastcompany.com — Two years ago, model Karlie Kloss enrolled in Flatiron School's two-week pre-college coding course and caught the programming bug. She started taking regular private coding classes with Flatiron dean and cofounder Avi Flombaum (who she already knew socially) and enjoyed the experience so much that she decided to underwrite 21 Kode with Karlie scholarships so other young women could take the same two-week pre-college coding course at Flatiron that had kicked off her own programming education.

Google Created A Horserace Tracker

fastcompany.com — Because you're not getting enough horserace coverage from the media as it is. Google has made the Great American Horserace a little more interactive. I was pretty worried that we weren't getting enough minute-by-minute horserace coverage from the media, so I'm quite relieved that this was made.

Mark Zuckerberg Defends Facebook Against Free Basics' Critics

fastcompany.com — Today, Mark Zuckerberg published a lengthy opinion article in The Times Of India defending his attempt to connect millions of people to the Internet via a suite of Facebook-approved apps. It's called Free Basics, and the service lets people with feature phones and other devices access online services without paying data charges.

Platforms decide who gets heard

niemanlab.org — As you are most certainly aware, Republican frontrunner Donald Trump recently suggested that Muslims be banned from entering the United States for a while. In this country, that kind of talk is not illegal - we're protected by the First Amendment, which guarantees our right to free speech, to give voice to whatever we might believe to be true or wise.

Shut Down The Internet? How Plausible Is Donald Trump's Suggestion?

fastcompany.com — During tonight's Republican primary debate, world-class demagogue rhetorician Donald Trump said America should shut off ISIS's access to the Internet-the terror network is disturbingly successful at spreading its propaganda and recruiting via social media. But how practical is Trump's suggestion? Indeed, there are countries that have cut off access to the Internet to their citizens.

Mark Zuckerberg To Muslim Facebookers: I Will Fight For You

fastcompany.com — A few nights ago, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump created an uproar ( and received some applause) when he suggested Muslims should be banned from entering the United States. Even without The Donald's demagoguery, this isn't an easy period for Muslim-Americans.
