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…


Pet Project: Collaboration

So - i've got almost 2 months under my belt at the new gig - and i'm ready to look around and see what sorts of fun i can stir up…. sure, it's one thing to encourage web cams and IM, another thing to figure out how to increase collaboration amongst a team who is extraordinarily geographically diverse. Did I mention the team is also fiercely independent? It makes for a great team, but it also makes for a VERY BIG VACUUM.

I need a tool that allows folks to keep each other up to speed on what we are working up, and also to share information, documents and diagrams. I am waiting for Foldera, because nothing else seems right. I'm worried that Foldera may be TOO much, and have too many whistles, and scare the ream away with arguements of cumbersome-ness and distractions… we shall see.
