|Let the memory of Cranky Geeks be with us forever. Forever cranky, forever geeky, forever missed.|
This memorial website was created in the memory of the Cranky Geeks Show which was born on March 15, 2006 and passed away on September 22, 2010. We will remember them forever. The show archives can be seen here:
Cranky Geeks was a technology-related Internet show produced by Ziff Davis Media centered on discussion of technology topics of the week. It was hosted by industry pundit John C. Dvorak. Each week three guest panelists, usually selected from a pool of technology journalists and entrepreneurs, joined Dvorak. The show, formerly produced by TechTV's Annaliza Savage, premiered to viewers of DL.TV on March 15, 2006 and has since received its own website. The show is similar to Dvorak's previous show, Silicon Spin. It is streamed live weekly on Wednesdays at 4:00 p.m. ET/1:00 p.m. PT from the Ziff Davis office in San Francisco, California. In addition, it is offered for download in multiple formats on a weekly basis, including as a video or audio podcast on iTunes. Show guests have included Martin Sargent, Neil Gaiman, Om Malik, Larry Lessig, Leo Laporte, Veronica Belmont, John Markoff, Natalie Del Conte, Robert Scoble, Jimmy Wales, Alex Albrecht, Molly Wood and Kevin Rose. Dvorak has humorously mentioned his intention to invite Danica Patrick, the IndyCar driver endorsing Go Daddy, one of the show's sponsors, whose commercial airs in every episode.
On his nightly Tech5 podcast episode for 9/15/2010, host John C. Dvorak announced that they had produced that day's Cranky Geeks show (9/15/2010) and also the final-ever Cranky Geeks show to be released the following Wednesday 9/22/2010.
"I loved the episode when JCD had Danica Patrick on the show."
