telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


Think About Being a Better Consumer

I used to think I was a responsible consumer.

But I’m not. I’m not really any better than any other middle-class citizen in Canada. The bigger problem is that I don’t know how, or have the tools at hand to be better. I still buy things I don’t really need. I still want things I don’t require. We still spend money on inconsequential items.

If I was smart, and wanted to buy things, I would concentrate on those items that would come in handy in a time of crisis: camping gear, solar panels, sleeping bags.

Even if there’s not any crises in my lfetime, those things would certainly come in handy, regardless.

Maybe I can become a smarter consumer.
