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…


Smog in the City...

.. how unsexy.
When I first moved here, and watched the morning from the roof, it was quaint, in a 519-area sort of way, to see the whisp of creme brule atmosphere across the lake.  I could convince myself that "wow, it's really smoggy in oakville and burlington". Quaint.
Now, I understand that it was *me* inside the bubble.  Not so quaint.

For the past 3 days, breathing outside has been like trying to sleep with your head under the covers. Do it for too long, and my legs feel all tingley. My head feels all cottony.

Now, thunder has been chasing its tail all across the city, but has yet to produce a single drop of rain to wash away the nasty smog blanket.  I'm pretty sure the smog is keeping the rain away. Visions of Regensis, and uber-strong acid rain keep flickering through my head. 

I walked the dog early tonight, just in case.
