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…


Facebook Feature Wishlist

Jeff Pulver’s got an awesome commentary of invisibleness on Facebook.  The idea being that you could be visible to some, and invisible to others. Like pseudo-lurking, if you will.  Instant Messenger apps have this, why couldn’t Facebook?  Considering the multitudes who use this app, for both work and play, there’s bound to be a time when you wished you could be invisible (Hi Boss!)

I miss the music features of IM - knowing what someone is listening to - sure, there are likely thousands of Facebook apps that support that, but the trick is you have to be using the same music app that your friends are, and more likely than not, it’s not sending a mini-news feed on what they’ve got in their headphones.

I love Iotum’s Free Conference Calls on Facebook - imagine if you could twist that up a notch and have the app do video calls as well? Mmmmm….

What sorts of things would be on your wishlist?
