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…


Finally Ebay Succumbs to Loonie Pressure - Adjusts Exchange Rates

In December I noted the evil game that Ebay and Paypal were playing with the exchange differences between the Canadian and US dollars.
Today Ebay decides to reflect parity between the two currencies, and will display prices with more accuracy.
The Ebay forums have been rife with folks questioning and complaining, and now, almost 4 months after the Canadial loonie has gained muscle, they are going to update the systems.

Now if only PayPal will follow suit! :-)
