I wanted to mention that I have been keeping a blog dedicated to the process of deindustrialization in Cleveland and across the region.
A former co-worker of mine and I began Rustwire to highlight some of the common problems being experienced in older, Midwest cities, as well as highlight some promising solutions.
This project has been a lot of work, but we’re starting to get some recognition. We were recently highlighted in The Chicago Reader.
Kate and I are always open to tips and contributions from other Rust Belt residents with their ears to the ground. I keep a special email address for this group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading!
