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…


Flock Rocks with Facebook

Upgrading to Flock 1.0.3 completely changed my morning, transforming it into a lovely experience - full of balloons and ponies and candy floss.Wow - why did I wait!  I’ve been using an older 0.09 version, stubbornly.New Flock, supercharged Flock, has just rocked my socks off with it’s integration of Facebook.

It can track and show and remind me of all sorts of neat tidbits about my friends.It does a nutty good job of media, blog editing and even the main *My World* default start page is good, I’ve got to admit. Tracking stuff in an RSS reader, recently viewed sites and Flickr accounts.

I grabbed the screenshot on the left with just a *print screen* and pasted it into the Flock blog editor - and magical things happened - a Flickr dialog box opened, and asked me a few things, and then the Flock editor turned the screen capture into a .JPG, uploaded it to Flickr and referenced it here!  Can you believe that?!?!? I’m not even kidding.

I know - I know - it’s a big step - after all, most folks have just recently gotten brave enough to switch up IE for Firefox. But whoa - Flock Rocks. I wouldn’t lead you astray. I even like it more than Opera. (Sorry Opera - seeing some incompatibility issues still)
