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…


groundhogs and DNS...

…. whay back when i was a wee sysadmin type at an even wee-er isp, back in the good ole days, i got to be the one to register domain names…. wiartonwillie.org, wiarton-willie.org, mebbe even wiartonwilllie.on.ca

it seems that one of them has survived, which is always comforting.  one likes to see the continuation of one’s work - like a legacy for those who come after ;-) 

okokok - fer gawd’s  sake, it’s just a frigging domain name - i got it. It’s still alive - and it’s been usurped by a higher power - go willie!

So - go out and see if you can see a shadow today. Good luck willie,  you wiley little colour deprived rodent…
