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…


2nd Canadian Long Weekend - Same Stupid Suburban Fireworks

A tiny, naive part of me secretly hoped that the recent Canada Day long weekend would bring a different type of serenity to the neighbourhood. Alas, the same suburban idiots continue to think it’s cool to impress their drooling offspring by lighting off fireworks just feet from their neighbour’s homes.  When you need a license these days to do everything from drive a boat to own a pet, when will the Canadian (or even Ontario) government realize that fireworks are decidedly NOT for the great unwashed masses?

If I can’t have a controlled *fire* in my backyard, why can people go freely to the closest 7-11 and buy the means to take down my street?  Did you know that fireworks were banned in Canada in the early 1970’s? Whaaaat happened?
