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…


A Billion Blogs....

Om Malik discusses the validitity of the claim that there are 50 million blogs in the *blogosphere*…. and the merits of how many of them are actually active…. I tend to be cynical. From experience.
It’s too bad there isn’t a way to tell how many active vs created blogs there are.  In the past 5 years, I have a feeling i’ve contributed to the explosion of blogs.  You see, I’m a habitual blog creator. It’s a bit of an addiction with me.  I’ve got 4 blogs with Live journal, 3 with blogger, 3 with wordpress, one silly soulcast, and those are just the ones I remember!! Not to mention the ones that are active; jules.ca, the curious tale of the girl and the telco, and tech whisperer. And just wait till floobergeist.com gets out of the gate!

There might have been 50 million blogs that have ever been created but there aren’t 50 million blogs in active use.
