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…


tequila, watches and homeless guys...

….just your average thursday night in the city ;-)
 With a gazillion closest friends….

It was a good goodbye fete last night. All the folks who have helped and laughed and supported each other over the past decade. Plus I got a snappy new watch!!!! 140836128_a7327ed55b_o.jpgAnd now, as i pour over the sordid photos and memories of last night, i do so with fondness and appreciation.


  • learning that not all tequila is bad tequila
  • when it’s your fete, all beverages are free
  • sometimes it *is* ok to slurp oysters from the shell
  • 2 is the right number of bio-break bodyguards to have
  • no matter how much water you drink, sometimes it’s not enough
  • hugs can really scare away hiccups
  • it’s good to give money to homeless guys with no shoes
  • 34 is too old to stand in line for a bar, any bar
  • leather couches are a perfect accessory for beverages
  •  it’s good to go home at the right time, after the last pub
