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…

I am completely twigging onto how non-traditional  venues are picking up on blogging, and extending their audience reach in a very conversational way. Folks are commenting, and conversing and sharing in the Canpages discussions. What an innovative way to look at directory services as interactive applications. And if you happen to be one of the businesses that is the topic of discussion, can your publicity get any better? What a great stretch of an advertising dollar.
