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…


iTunes Gift Card - Quite Possibly the Perfect Pressie

Just got my first Amex statement.
I’m embarrassed about the wee $0.99 charges that litter the bill like puppy footprints on a clean floor.
There isn’t many, less than 10. But there’s got to be a better way. I wish I could set up iTunes so that I could put a “Buy Julie a Song” link on facebook, or jules.ca - Imagine how neat that would be?
Heck - you can’t even buy a coffee for $0.99.  But you could sure put a smile on someones face for a LONG time, if you bought them a song.

Hmmmm - buying a smile for a song(tm). I like that.

The only feature that comes close to what I want is the iTunes Allowance. But get this - when I try to set up an allowance, it doesn’t let me - you can’t set an allowance for yourself. Cripes!!! I’m stuck with puppy prints of iTunes song purchases on my Amex statement forever. I wonder if I can buy myself a gift card. Likely not. Grrr.


You can only set up allowances for other people. But it still doesn’t let me get other people to contribute ;-) Heh. Still - I’d love to purchase songs for other like-minded people - this doesn’t have to be a one way street :-)
