Search Engine -- the long-suffering and absolutely brilliant tech radio show/podcast -- is alive and in its new home, hosted by TVOntario, a Canadian public broadcasting that scooped the show out from underneath the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The premiere show in the new series features a long interview with me -- I was passing through Toronto last week and he came by my parents place and recorded an interview.
Inexplicably, the CBC has not set a redirect message on the old podcast feed, so subscribers to the old show are getting dead links. This is either an oversight or pure, unforgivable nastiness. Either way, it's a good time to add the new feed to your podcatcher!
What's more, TVO has given host/creator Jesse Brown permission to Creative Commons license the podcast, making it the first-ever piece of CC licensed public broadcast material in Canadian history!

For most of a decade, government negotiators from around the Pacific Rim have met in utmost secrecy to negotiate a “trade deal” that was kept secret from legislatures, though executives from the world’s biggest corporations were allowed in the room and even got to draft parts of the treaty.
The Lytro Illum dares to be different, boasting even more robust features than its first generation predecessor and a sleek design reminiscent of professional DSLRs. What’s so cool about it? Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing a statoc 2D image.
