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…


Service Credit Union Phishing Scam

Wow! It’s an auspicious sort of day. Aside from having the first killer cold of the season, I also just became a target of a phishing scam ;-)

The illustrious folks from the Service Credit Union just sent me an interesting email.

Service Credit Union Phishing ScamAside from the fact that I’ve never heard of the Service Credit Union, and I’m not a customer, it’s a bang on phishing scam.  Presumably, had I been a customer, I’d have clicked on the link, generously provided, but masking the TRUE destination of http://wxjs.com/servicecu.html, and then dumped in a whole bunch of banking information.


I feel special.
