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…


Telecom 2.0 - Changing the Rules

As the global telecom players gear up to decide their collective futures, it's interesting to pay attention to what is being said about the evolution of telecom and communications services, from a traditionalist perspective.

Organizations such as Telco 2.0 are well ahead of the curve in having conversations about evolution and changing the rules of the industry.

After just returning from a fiercely challenging sales conference with TELUS, my mind is just now considering the possibilities.  Changing the rules, changing the game, changing the industry.  Those organizations who aren't actively involved in changing the rules will be left with trying to fit their existing infrastructure into a new world order. That dauting task will change the playing field entirely.

The world has become flat again, thanks in part to the virtual service providers, the Web2.0 invasion, and the rise in anywhere, anytime, any device connectivity. Those companies who have the advantage are no longer the traditional telco incumbents.  Be quick, and nimble and creative. Be part of shaping the future, passivity will get you left in the dust.
