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…


Canadian Military Scrambles to Fill Boots?

The military is lowering its fitness standards for new recruits and moving training and administrative personnel into combat units.

O’Connor says military ‘scrambling’ to find soldiers for Afghanistan



Imagine thinking you had a nice, cushy, relatively safe admin job with the Canadian Military. One day, poof, you are handing out soccer balls in Afghanistan. Silly Canadian military. Changing the fitness standards, so more people could enlist? Military standards are standards for a reason, methinks. Perhaps this could be a wake up call. If no one wants to fight, maybe Canada won’t have to fight any more?

Can we have a new election now, please?
