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…


Two Things...

1.  Ok, this is the neatest ad I’ve seen in a while. I fell for the wee lemur sitting in the corner of the MobileSyrup page…..

Nifty the things that advertisers can put together with a bit of fancy code and polish.




2.  What’s the deal with Saskatchewan and the subsidizing of broadband for all? I suppose that stratergy only works when the government owns all the telecom infrastructure. :-( God help any independants in Saskatchewan. (are there any?)

3. Etsy completely rocks my world. Ok, I said there was only 2 things, but this is worth mentioning. I’ve recently started purchasing bits and pieces of beauty from Etsy. The independant sellers sent me email thank yous, included thank yous in my packages, and even showered me with free gifts. Cripes. I think I should invite them to Christmas dinner. They *are* amazing. I check the mailbox every day for more
postal love.
