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…


Ontario Government's Excessive Attempt to Control the Internet

No person shall print, publish, distribute, broadcast or telecast an advertisement or representation that includes an Internet gaming business website address unless the person believes in good faith that the Internet gaming business has been licensed or otherwise granted permission to operate in Ontario or Canada by the appropriate authority and is operated in accordance with the applicable laws of Ontario and Canada.

Thanks to Mark for pointing out this silly government bill - where it looks like the ontario government is going to make it illegal to advertise gambling websites, or to even link to sites that advertise gambling websites. Mark points out that this interpretation would even make google.ca offside.  This smells alot like blaming the cart, not the horse, for running away. I’d love to know what sorts of experts and consultants are working on this initiative from within the government. Perhaps the gov’t should consider outsourcing these jobs to the private sector? Or maybe even to someone who’s just “living” in the real world?

Silly Ontario government.
