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…


Trick or Treating Preparedness

Since moving into the new place, folks have been regularly providing advice about the neighbourhood, and the seasons, and the decorating… but the biggest piece of advice is to be prepared for Halloween. Apparently kids come out of the woodwork (and woods), and descend like a plague of locusts on October 31st.

I took the voices of the experienced neighbours to heart. We now have over 700 pieces of sugary goodness locked away in the garage. (right next to the 2 cartons of girl guide cookies) Still, there are times when I’ve had to fight back the urge to stockpile more. The fact that there is a new dentist office at the end of our street has not escaped notice either.  Irony has been duly noted.

After all, it’s candy. I can freeze it.
