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…


Picking the Right Wireless Horse to Win the Race...

The Globe has a good article this morning on the differences between the Canadian Wireless Carrier's networks. With wireless number portabiity launched and available, it's good to know the differences.

The article focuses mainly on international roaming, which is easier done with a GSM phone. One point that's missed in the whole comparison is the fact that the CDMA networks that Bell and TELUS has are now faster for data transfer than the Rogers GSM network. So - are you a traveller, or a data streamer?
