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 last day...

… of christmas vaca. i’m not ready, it hasn’t been long enough, there are more things i still want to do! did i menation that i’m not ready yet?



last night the wiz and i went to see narnia… and it was surprising, the audience was old. not old old, but old like us ;-) and i suppose it was just as well, considering that old people are becoming just as noisy and  unfocused as kids… :-) common sense, i’ll say it again, isn’t as common as you think… people who think it’s ok to walk on the road, people who think it’s ok to let a cell phone ring in a theatre, people who think it’s ok to walk partway through doors, and then stop to talk to friends… people who DO stop in the middle of the sidewalk to chat, not caring enough about their surroundings to realize they are stopped in the middle of a busy sidewalk; and one of my all time favourites, people who stop to talk just in front of elevator doors….  

you hafto think… at some point, how do you  get these people to smarten up? How can we enlighten them that their choices are inappropriate in a city of over 2 million?
