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…


A Little Sad About Ted...

So very many better writers than I have already written such interesting and thoughtful pieces on the death of Ted Rogers. Mark Goldberg, Mark Evans, and of course, Macleans has a huge, huge section dedicated to Mr Rogers. (I didn’t know him to call him Ted).

Whether you loved him or cursed him, he really was one of the most significant driving forces in Canadian Telecommuncations. He pushed his competitors, the government and his own teams into creating, investing and innovating the Canadian communications industry. Really, no one in Canada has not been touched by Ted Rogers in one way or another. There’s few people who can be described in such a manner. Sigh.

Thanks Mr Rogers.
