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…


September 11, 2007 - Where Do We Go From Here?

It was sunnier out 6 years ago.
And warmer.
I was being all salesy and on my way to see a  customer about a big honking internet pipe.
We ended up just watching the news in her office lobby.
And then I went home.
I think everyone went home that day.
I couldn't go back to the office as there were UN delegates being chaperoned there.

I sat in my backyard, and listened to the silence of a thousand grounded airplanes.

It's been 6 years.
Do we know any more than we did 6 years ago?
Can the governments make any more dizzying announcements about accountability, responsibility and motive?
Are we any closer to any resolution, or do we simply carry on, hoping that it was just a co-incidence and an excuse to invade a country who had what the US wanted. Was it a money making scheme between the Bush Family and the Saudis?
Ah - I'm beginning to sound like Michael Moore.
Still - so many questions, and so little effort put into finding the answers.
