When All That's Left Is A Name

from the relics-of-a-failure dept

You see them all the time around Silicon Valley: buildings that have the names of companies on them

that are no longer in business. With so many companies failing, or selling out to others, there often isn’t time, money, or interest in ditching the old signs. The article points to the very noticeable “AirTouch” building in San Francisco. AirTouch is now part of Vodafone and the name is no longer used. For some real estate owners, it’s embarrassing. They feel it screams out “I rented out a building to a company that couldn’t make it.”
