Search Engine Rises from the Grave

Yay! As promised, Jesse Brown has ressurected one of my favorite podcasts, Search Engine. I mentioned previously that the CBC, in their not so infinite wisdom, decided to drop this podcast after its first season. Jesse, unwilling to leave it at that, committed to keeping the blog and podcast going on his own at that time. I am thankful for that as I think Jesse’s work very nicely complements my own.

  1. I don’t believe that’s an entirely accurate summation of events. As I understand it, the CBC, in their not so infinite wisdom, decided to drop the on-air radio program, but keep the podcast. Jesse gets to be a sort of roving Internet reporter for other shows, but he does lose the production staff that came along with having his own show.

    I’m glad he’s still around, obviously. Zombie Jesse was a nice touch.

    The CBC also has another Internet-related show called Spark, which is quite a bit fluffier, focusing on Internet lifestyle sorts of things. It’s not the same, but it does cover some interesting ground. This week’s interview with Brewster Kahle of the Internet Archive was quite good.

  2. I am sorry, you are obviously correct as the link I used is clearly hosted by the CBC. I let me irritation at their, IMO, poor decision cloud my explanation of what had come before.

    Thanks for the link to Spark, I will certainly check that out, even with the caveat.
