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…


A Spammer by any other name...

I’ve got mail from:

  • Millicent Pineda
  • Thurman Larsen
  • Ava Russo
  • Shuracov
  • Cherokee Shelby
  • Archie Brittingham
  • Johnny Pierson
  • Leonel Villegas

… just to name a few.  All spammers, the crumby lot of them.  But I wonder, were they ever real people? Are they still?  Do they know they are being exploited by spammers?


… did you ever wonder where the spammer names come from?

I just googled one - good old Johnny Pierson lives in Irvin, Texas.
