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…


Pandora is Dead..... Long Live Pandora!

It's true.
This morning, when I tried Pandora for the last time, the gates were shut...

Dear Pandora Visitor,

We are deeply, deeplysorry to say that due to licensing constraints, we can no longer allowaccess to Pandora for most listeners located outside of the U.S. Wewill continue to work diligently to realize the vision of a trulyglobal Pandora, but for the time being we are required to restrict itsuse. We are very sad to have to do this, but there is no otheralternative.
That being said........ there are options.  You could go to the Anonymizer, and use their Anonymous Surfing package... just $29.99/year - and then, if you are a wee Canadian, the rghts and priviledges of all Americans are available to you; namely being able to watch NBC's Jericho Episodes on the net.

I wonder how long it will be before services like Anonymizer are also headlocked by nutty internet policies?
Of course, there are also the free anonymous proxy servers as well, but it seems the best one is in Canada - which defeats the purpose of what we are trying to achieve here ;-)
