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…


Outlawed - Texting and Emailing

CityNews: Province Moves To Ban Cellphone Use While Driving
Details of the proposed legislation aren't yet available, including what the punishment for offenders would be, but it will reportedly include rules forcing Ontario motorists to use hands-free devices if they plan to make calls. Texting and emailing would be outlawed.
I love the phrase "texting and emailing would be outlawed".Apparently hands free phones are still safe.
But not all organizations support the proposed new ban - the Canada Safety Council feels the rules would be ignored and suggests police should use existing laws to crack down on careless drivers.
This is what I wrote about last week - finally cracking down on dumb drivers.I wonder if this means I cant take a photo of dumb drivers and post it to facebook any more?
