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…


Give Where You Live

Yesterday I was quite enamoured by a story of giving where you live from the TELUS International President. TELUS is well known for its Canadian *Give Where You Live* campaign. Over the past few years, TELUS International has expanded this value to Latin America and the Phillipines, where employees go out regularly to participate in community giving. Everything from building houses for the homeless to teaching English.

Did you know you can build a house in the Phillipines for $1400?

The goal is to build 7000 houses by 2025. The video was amazing.

I needed a kleenex.
