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…


Using Digg in a Whole New Way

Who would have thought - popular digg - used to sniff out the breaking news and popular blog postings of the hour, could also have a sideline application.
I've stayed away from digg, it's too arbitrary, not to metion corrupt for my tastes. But I've just discovered a side application for it. It's a comments conversation for blogs that don't allow comments. Easy. Dead easy.

The followers of Violent Acres, hungry for conversation, since Violent Acres doesn't allow comments in her blog [and for good reason, likely], have started "digging" VA's postings; and then contining on with the conversation in Digg. An interesting new twist to an existing application. I'm constantly amazed at the innovation and creativity that seems to bloom from nowhere. Necessity - the mother of invention.
