Here's another example of national interest in the story. Coming up Friday, NPR's Frank Langfitt will explore the history of NUMMI on All Things Considered, and then go in-depth with a full hour on This American Life on Saturday.
As long as I'm shouting out to solid coverage, here's a plug for the San Francisco Business Journal, which delivered a flurry of articles on NUMMI last week. There's a look at the way local businesses like restaurants will be affected by the shutdown (what economists call "tertiary" impacts). The picture won't be pretty for commercial real estate. Finally, for subscribers, there's a look at how local developers are licking their chops at the prospect of a big piece of land coming available in April. There's a nifty map of the land that, fortunately, you don't need a subscription to see.
