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…


Watch for Falling Ice

The Gardiner Expressway has just been shut down, westbound, throughout the city of Toronto because of ice falling off the CN tower. Imagine the impact, this is more than a math question of how much damage a penny can make when you drop it off the CN tower. This would be bags and bags of pennies.

Akin to being shot at, likely, if you were driving, and a piece of ice hit your car. They’ve only shut down the westbound lanes - the ones closest to the tower, they’ve left the eastbound lanes open. Makes you think, if you were going eastbound, are you going to take the chance that a gust of wind isn’t going to blow an ice bullet another 8 feet into *your* lanes? Methinks that smart drivers will opt out as well, even if unofficially.
