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…


Every Day They Call for Rain

And yet, every other day (I’m on a stage 1 Water Alert), I find myself at the end of the day, watering those shrinking bits of green in my yard, wondering if perhaps my neighbourhood is averse to precipitation somehow.

Still there are yards on my street who have completed the dertification process, laying brown and crispy next to their lusher neighbours, and I wonder, could there become a bylaw that says that you are not ALLOWED to let your front lawn die because it hasn’t rained?  Would it have killed you to do a *little* watering? If only to keep a shred of life in your yard?
