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…


Changing of the Guard: Dave Dobbin

I can't say I'm all that surprised, but yesterday's announcement by Cogeco of the resignation of Dave Dobbin as President of Cogeco Data Services leaves me feeling a bit sad. Mergers and acquistions are always fraught with changes, but still...

Dave Dobbin was the leading force behind Toronto Hydro Telecom (it's been since purchased by Cogeco), and was very involved in THT's innovative wifi blanket of downtown Toronto.

I was lucky enough to hear him speak at the Canadian Telecom Summit in 2007. Fantastic speaker, down to earth fellow.

I look forward to hearing about his next endeavours.
Good Luck Dave!
