Extra Extra!!

It is hard to believe that it has only been 2 weeks since I had the pleasure to introduce Ariel Ferreira to the LM Community. She has accomplished so much in these past 14 days.

Not only has she drunk from the fire hose that is the Local Motors History, plan, and vision, but she has also turned on her own media engine and has begun to write her own blog. Ari now has joined our other two regular blogs (Vehicle Engineering and Founders Blog) as she writes regularly about life at the Local Motors Ranch. From people to pets, lunches to favorite snacks, hand tools to serious machines, and more, Ari has made it her mission to talk about what is happening day in and day out at the company.

Basically, she figured that many of our readers came to our site because they simply wanted to know about and be part of the experience of building a new kind of car, and so she uses her blog to help them achieve that. Aptly called Local Motors: Life, Ari's blog is an engaging update which will keep you in the know. Bookmark it, plug it into your RSS queue, sign up for her daily email, but whatever you do, don't miss her news.

And as an Extra Extra treat on this news worthy day, Ari prepared our messaging and was responsible for getting me through our first Local Boston media interview. Bravo! It appears that the reporter and his paper are going to run a story on our company in the near future. Stay tuned for more information on this event (name of the paper and date of story) and let's hear it for our community evangelist and public relations manager!!
