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…


The Scary Reality of IMS...

Is this what IMS will come down to? I'm torn to bits between the good and the bad of IMS.  I'm looking for someone to share what the good bits could be. other than simple presence features, and the ability to perhaps have a communications service that would mean ONE PHONE that would be capable of cellular services (EVDO), WiFi, and VoIP. Now, I CAN see value in that ;-) I'm not convinced though that IMS is going to make that possible.

Fractals of Change: Internet Neutrality – Tough Issue
The Internet the telcos would like us to live with here in the United States is “application aware” as well as “source aware”. If you want to build a new application, you can wait in line for major Internet’s owners (these same telcos) to decide to accommodate your packet type.
