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…


Another Cell Phone Data Dead End?

Also today, Research In Motion announced it is rolling out Facebook software for its BlackBerry, another data-intensive application. Judging by the way some people use Crackbook, as one wag I know calls it, this could bankrupt Canadian Facebook addicts. So it’s not surprising that RIM’s first customer for the service is T-Mobile USA, not a Canadian company.
globeandmail.com: Kapica's Cyberia - Will easy data plans sell cellphones?I don't mind using my berry for Facebook the odd time. I just use the browser. It's not pretty, but it's functional. I'd love to see what Rim has come up with for a true Facebook Blackberry Application. Alas. It's blocked from being downloaded.:-(
