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…


Ugly Betty?

In an era where we are just beginning to understand the significant implications of culture, fashion and entertainment on self esteem, it behooves me to wonder why and how a TV show named Ugly Betty gets released.

I’ve been parousing the news sites this morning, and stumbled across the Ugly Betty ad, right beside another ad from Dove, which actually is an outstanding service announcement about the implications of low self esteem on girls, and what women can do to support a young girl’s self esteem. Mixed messages, or what?

MamaVISION has another take on the idiocy of TV, and the messages that are being sent to the young women of today on “America’s top Model….  

Sigh. Who let this one out of the stable, and what sort of justification could there possibly be?

Silly people.
