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…


The Big Wind-Down

Police in the Philippines use water cannon to break up a protest in the capital, Manila, against politically-motivated killings.

… it’s that time of the year. When, in theory, there are only a handful of days of paying attention to work. A handful of assignments and projects to tidy up before a few well deserved weeks of relaxation christmas chaos. This year, it *is* going to be more relax, less chaos.

Sure. I say that every year. Already I know I’m a liar. I’ve got 5 days to get my ducks in a row. 5 days to finalize shopping for the Wiz, the dad and maybe a kid or 2.

5 days to figure out one of the hardest problems at work I’ve ever come across. Whew. Maybe we could push christmas back until the end of January? I’ll be in better shape by then.
