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…


RSS Readers and Guilty Pleasures

When I first became addicted to RSS feeds, i decided to use google's customized start page.  I know, it was a little wimpy, but it did the trick, and what did I know, I liked it, and it was handy.  And then my list of RSS feeds grew, and grew, and grew.  Now it's a significant list, and I've run into problems with my wee Google Start Page.  I don't think it was created to handle more than 20 or so RSS feeds.  Now it is VERY grumpy, and often, all the feeds won't load.  It's like I've come to a glass ceiling for feeds.


Now begins the painful task of migrating to a new news reader.

I am thinking it's going to be Netvibes.  Any suggestions?  Anything worth a second look?
