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…


Dealing with Images in Multiple Buckets on the Internet

What do folks do with the plethora of online images that they have, that may be strewn about the internet? Am I the only loser who's got images with Flickr, with Picasa Web Albums and with Facebook?

I use the different buckets to help differentiate usergroup permission, and to deal with the fact that some folks aren't using some applications, and to also simply simplify some of the Picasa things that I do.

Some may say that it's ok to have multiple copies of the same photos on multiple image applications. Me, I think that's just adding digital litter to the internet. In a perfect world, there would be one bucket, and I could choose which apps to dole out images to. Images would reside in one place, and be *pulled* as needed into the various apps that would become a vehicle for delivery, as opposed to being a vehicle for storage.

What do *you* do with your images? Are you disciplined enough to have only one image application?
