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…


Working in the UK?

Normally I’m not a person who keeps track of patterns (not obvious patterns, anyways). Yet in the past week, I’ve spoken with 4 people who have or are considering working in the UK. One of them has taken the plunge already, and wouldn’t change for the world! Enough people have mentioned it, that it made sense to take a wee look at what all the fuss is about….

So, I’m curious - what’s so exciting about living and working in the UK? Aside from the fact that *you* would be the one with the neat accent, of course. Perhaps it’s an interesting cultural change. Word on the street is that the jobs tend to pay bags of gold. But I couldn’t imagine the timeconsuming fiddling that must go into making the transition. The dispersements of belongings back here, the challenge of visas and work permits and bank accounts and taxes. It all sounds oddly psychotic, depite how easy the already-moved say it is. Already my brain is taxed, thinking about all the odds and ends that need to be considered.

There’s a good Canadian Expat Blog, that gives you the goods, but I want something more, I want someone who would act like a mortgage consultant- to take care of everything for me, and I just sign everything away, and then pack. And then I found it…Michael Page Recruitment can take care of all the ugly bits. Like a Mortgage Consultant, but better. International. If you are thinking of working in the UK, and now I know that there are quite a FEW of you considering it…. it’s not as hard as you think.
