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…


Living in Virtual Reality...

… it's early, very early, and i'm up, wandering around and waiting for the water to boil for coffee… and decided to poke into Scobleizer and see what that wee microsift due was up to… eep - i should have just read the newspapers, would have been safer…

He'd documented an interesting virtual game/MUD/MOO called Second Life. I'd never heard of it, and so I gave it a google. Yikes, like i just want to drop over the sleeping dog.

You see, in 3rd year university, i was quite deep into mutiuser games, and multiuser games that let you make things and do interesting things in VR. I was hooked, classes were ignored, boyfriends too. Really, not entirely my fault, it was all greg's fault . It was an interesting time, before windows took over the internet… a simple time ;-)

Regardless, i sit here now, wondering if I really want to delve back into that world, to see what is new, what it's like, what has changed. Now isn't a good time, ;-) I don't have countless hours to dedicated.

My fingers are itchy, maybe i'll just poke at it till the rest of the world wakes up.
