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…


Hate Crime and Punishment: 45 Days

A 26-year-old man was sentenced to 45 days in prison this week after pleading guilty to a hate-crimes charge, York Regional Police said yesterday.

The charge stemmed from an incident last year where the man painted a skeleton black and hung it by a noose from a flag pole - which was flying a Confederate flag - outside a Georgina, Ont., home.

45 days? That's it? For being about as hateful and obnoxious as you can be? In Ontario? I get it, Canada's a pretty tolerant place, but do we have to be tolerant of hate crimes as well?
