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…


Shrinking Canadian Support for Troops in Afghanistan

Slightly more than half of Canadians support the Afghan mission and believe troops are providing critical support, suggests a poll that found less enthusiasm for the Tories' foreign policies in general.

Slight majority of Canadians support Afghan mission: poll

I have a sinking suspicion that the people were polled were showing support for the canadian troops stuck in Afghanistan, and were NOT showing support for the Canadian government's foreign policies. The fact that Canadians have now been warned by Al-Quaeda should be a bit of a warning shot over Harper's bow........

Unfortunately now, it's too late to change direction, even if changing direction is the right thing to do.  Now, it will appear as if Canada is allowing itself to be blackmailed by a terrorist organization.  It's a damn shitty spot to be in.  And every morning, I watch the planes overhead, and wonder.
