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…


Bravery on the Nameless, Faceless Internet

Sheesh - I've been reading the kerfuffle over the legal ownership of the term web 2.0,a nd how it can be used (or not) in conferences. Tim O'Reilly and CMP have certainly stirred the blogo-pot on this one…. or, perhaps it's something else…

There once was a time when you could make a business decision, and not have the rest of the world reading over your shoulder. The developments of web 2.0 and the kazillion of bloggers throughout the world have put a magnifying glass on everything that remotely smells like it could have an impact on them. And what's worse, people have NO PROBLEM spouting off on anything vaguely controvercial, regardless of what it is. What may be the kicker tho, is the louder people spout, the less they really know about the content, the situation or the background. Funny, that.

Maybe we don't need more collaboration. Maybe we need more education. More critical thinking, not personal criticism.

Reading what some of the posters had to say about Tim made me embarassed to be a blogger.
