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…


IP-PBXes, Soft Switches, SBCs... Oh My!

I'm back on the trail of the illusive VoIP Network - deciphering components and applications and interoperability. It's 7:55 pm and one eye is becoming twitchy from all the diagrams and scaleability issues and white papers and nonsense I've read through in the past 3 hours.

I've been everywhere.
Except for VoIP Nirvana; I don't think that place exists.
Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, Asterisk, UTStarcom, Siemens. Oh la la, it's too much right now ;-)
I'm more advanced than this
I'm not convinced that the IEC documents are still current.
The VoIP User Forum was reasonable.

I miss the good old days of just fixing someone's DNS and walking away happy ;-)
