Part 1: A For­got­ten News Lab Pre­dict­ed Journalism’s Online Future in 1991

Info­Lab imag­ined news­pa­pers’ tran­si­tion from print to dig­i­tal, cre­at­ing mul­ti­me­dia dig­i­tal news in the base­ment of The Hamil­ton Spec­ta­tor back in the ear­ly 90s.

Jesse talks to its for­mer direc­tor, jour­nal­ist Wayne MacPhail, about what the Info­Lab did, and why it shut down short­ly after Con­rad Black’s com­pa­ny bought the news­pa­per chain.

Part 2: Lord Ball­wash­er of Crossharbour

Canada’s dusty old pri­va­cy laws are back in the spot­light thanks to the government’s new dig­i­tal charter.
Matt Gur­ney co-hosts.
