From HistoryWire to TCEBlog

There used to be a CanHist blog called History Wire, with a mixed group of contributors somewhat associated with the Canadian Encylopedia and the Historica-Dominion Institute.  It used to mix substantial Canadian history pieces, HDI promotional pieces, and odd personal rants and prejudices. One never quite knew what to expect.

'Tseems HistoryWire is no more. In its place, as of June 30 (at least that's the earliest post found) there is TCE Blog, the blog of The Canadian Encyclopedia.  At a glance it seems to have a strengthened list of contributors, a clearer purpose, and a more ambitious posting schedule.  Notable right now is a series of excerpts from publisher Doug Gibson's about-to-be-published memoir of the Canadian authors he worked with, Stories about Storytellers.
