Last year, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation created a new radio show, Search Engine, to chronicle the shifts being wrought upon global culture and politics as a consequence of technology. It was smart, funny, broke important stories, changed Canadian politics, won awards, and was a global success.
So the CBC cancelled it.
Now a group of Search Engine fans have created a Facebook group to save the show — and they want you to sign up, too.
One of the best and most successful shows on CBC radio, Search Engine, an award winning newsmagazine about the Internet and cyberculture, is inexplicably being shut down by management.
Join us in registering our displeasure, sadness and frustration with the CBC's management, and petitioning that the show be allowed to live on.
