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…


Creating a 100 Day Plan - Web 2.0 Style

It happens every year - the 100 Day Plan.  Of course - it quickly becomes the 300 Day Plan, but that’s another story. It’s a living, breathing document that helps define how my future will unfold. This year, instead of doing one in word or in excel, I thought I’d try and do it in a web 2.0 app. It would be easier to update, it would be shareable with the boss-man and the folks on my team.  One of the objectives of the 100 day plan is to get some buzz around it with executive types, so they know what your priorities are.

Last night I spent a some time checking out the different planning apps, todo lists, and even a new wiki. None of them seem to fit the bill.  It looks like I’m going to have to expand my search.  The platform needs to have:

  • lists
  • dates
  • times and timers/reminders/schedule
  • the ability to add a bunch of info associated with list items
  • it needs to be shareable
  • it needs to be collaborative-able
  • it needs to be able to accept attachments
  • I don’t want people to have to create an account on the platform to be able to see my Plan
  • I’d like to be able to have a summary view, as well as the ability to nest tasks within tasks.
It looks like I’m going to need a project management and collaboration tool, based on what I want.  Any suggestions? I can’t be the only one who’s looking for this.
