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…


the future...

the sexy new word: web 2.0

there’s little consensus on what it really means…. but it seems to mean alot to many interesting and influetential people…  it’s a big, messy, over encompassing word to capture the changes that have been happening with the internet.  Now, whether it’s all about collaboration, or blogging, or opensource on steroids, or if it’s simply a feeling of "being part of the big picture"… it’s hard to tell. Of course, the theories are multiplying like proverbial bunnies, and they are all tinted the same warm and fuzzy shade….

But no one can quite put their finger on the colour; is it mauve, is it pale purple, is it purpley pink?  I think you get my meaning. Check out the wikipedia link above (which is yet another example of web 2.0) and see if you don’t agree… it’s here, it’s an exciting concept to have after all the fuzzles of the past few years… people need something to jump to.  People are tired of the fuzzle.

Me, i’m admitting i am excited about web 2.0, even if i don’t really know what it is yet ;-)
