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…


missing mesh...

… so - all the cool kids are at the mesh conference…… but as this is only my 6th day of work (in a row) at the new gig, i couldn't very well bail so early for 2 days :-(

jon arnold writes some interesting commentary about what what, and who said who - and he got to see om malik [in real life!!]

one worthy nugget [among many] from jon's review about om was:

Finally, another nugget from Om was that the real value of the blog is not the content - it's the comments - the real dialog that blogs create a platform for. His job is really just to provide context for the important news items, and that sets the stage for intelligent engagement with a community that cares about that topic. Along those lines, as a journalist, blogging is his way of keeping a story going, which I'm sure all journalists would agree with.

i loved that part - it's all about the comments, and less about the content…. makes me think more about comments :-) and the fact that i don't write enough of them!! I can nod and grin or acrue wrinkles, but i rarely comment. For Shame. I will attempt to improve.
