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…


7:33 am

.. and i am standing in the tim hortons line.  Today is different.  It’s earlier, for one thing.  Today there is a homeless guy asking the people in the coffee line  for money.  He wanted to go to McDonalds. 

I don’t know why he wasn’t asking people in the McDonald’s line for money.

He didn’t get any change in the tim’s line.  There were whispers of calling for security.  The coffee dollies were tense.

The last person who was asked for change responded differently from the rest.  He swore.  In turn, the homeless guy became violent and hostile. Yelling of slavery. Racial words with little meaning, at 7:33 in the morning.  Before the first triple triple.

Tomorrow i will sleep in.

Perhaps Second Cup as well.
