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…


The Anti-Facebook Crew

Buzz Canuck has a very apropos statement about those folks who are dodging the Facebook Phenomenon:

I am always astonished to see people in my business (communications/marketing/media) proudly claim they aren't on Facebook as if they've joined some cool non-joiner club that smokes in the digital alleyways and are tough enough not to join the "cult". So what you're saying is that because of pride, ego or fear, you're not at least going to sample a cultural phenomenon that takes up an inordinate amount of your consumer/viewer/user's time, enthusiasm, insight and a great part of marketing's future. Foolhardy. It's the same people I met years ago that bought and purchased media yet never watched TV.

It's quirky to bug the non-facebookers. I like it.
