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…


General Motors Twitters Back.....

I'm not sure how I feel about this.
Krystyn Heide blogs about how GM has decided to halt the construction of a new plant in Flint that would produce GM's new Volt. Blog is picked up in Twitter. GM responds via Twitter to retract the statement...

"just because they aren't going to build the plant, doesn't mean the Volt is not going to be produced." (right, elves under the bridge in Detroit will cobble the Volt together).

Is it odd that GM is battling back via Twitter?
Is it an innovative marketing tactic?
A waste of time?

Perhaps it's the fact that GM is trying to do damage control via Twitter?
At this point in time, is it worth the effort?

On a lighter side (I've always got a lighter side), it's refreshing that dinosaurs are getting plugged into social media.
