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.

Note to Self: Read happy and uplifting things before bed, or suffer the consequences.  Darren's article on the risk of al-Qaeda threats to Canada invaded my subsonscious, and had me dreaming various assorted terrifying events. Sure, daylight savings time didn't help either, but still.

Why couldn't I have read something generic about youtube? Or Something equally safe, like Matthew Ingram's thoughts on the Un-coolness of MySpace?

Tonight. Something reasonable.
