The NewsTrust format and idea are interesting for the possibility of a democratically influenced news source. It provides another channel for getting news and views out to the public, a channel without a visible filter of the corporate press.

If you think Boeing screwed up the 787 project with management stupidity, wait until this same corps of beancounters screws up the whole company by destroying its internal engineering espirit de corps while trying to scratch McNerney's itch to hate unions.

one manager said critical remarks made at a local supplier conference earlier that month by noted aviation-industry analyst Richard Aboulafia were “resonating with people” ... More »

Sounds like a pimp piece for the shale oil and fracking industries. If the world moves toward sanity, the burning of oil and natural gas will be forced to decline in order to save the planet. The final cautionary notes are much too bland for the reality under them. It almost seems like the editor forced the author to add a small note on environment.

Nicholas was not the only one predicting the drain. Almost all of the members of the engineers union were predicting the job drain and requested job protection for engineers during the Boeing extortion negotiations with the state. Almost all of the legislators of both parties fell in line with Boeing's refusal to allow engineers jobs to be protected, with a few bright exceptions like Bob Hasegawa.
