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…


I'm Not Talking about the CRTC

But there are folks who ARE.
There are some very interesting discussions happening right now that can change the face of Canadian Telecommunications - everything from voice to long distance to the pre-paid cards you get for international phone calls. Even those underlying services that could be part of how you get internet access.

Everything is up for debate right now, as the CRTC decides what services should be essential, and mandatory to sell, and what services could become de-regulated, and *optional* sale services.

Still, I'm not talking about it.

Mark is. Alot.
The Canadian Press is.
The CRTC is.
MTS Allstream is.
The Public Interest Advisory Centre is.
Deidre at the Ottawa Citizen

I'm not.
