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…


Ontario: Go Out And SHOP

CTV Toronto- McGuinty urges Ontarians to spend this Xmas - CTV News, Shows and Sports — Canadian Television

“But if you don’t buy that car — even though you can actually afford it — if you don’t buy that fridge, if you don’t shop at Christmas time, it can actually put us in a bit of a downward spiral.”

McGuinty said he’s not trying to tell families not to be prudent and responsible, but they should be aware that about 60 per cent of the economy is connected to consumer spending.

Now this is simply bizarre. I understand that he’s trying to keep the weak economy crawling forward, but that’s a pretty insensitive comment, considering all the job losses this week.
