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…


Webkinz Redux

It's been over 6 months since I last wrote about Webkinz - Crack for Kids, and the debilitating obsession that can happen with kids and on-line gaming. Still, that article is being referred to in the news. In August, the UK Guardian picked it up... Last week, it was The Age, in Australia, who referenced my wee article. And a few days later, The Sydney Herald...  Folks continue to leave comments and it looks like the original tide of love for Webkinz type applications is starting to turn. NBC has a story in May, and I can only make the reasonable assumption that they borrowed the *Crack for Kids* tagline ;-)

That being said Dave Barry compares Webkinz to South Florida Crack. :-) And he did it in Feb of 2007.
