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…


CRIPES-------Rogers buys Aurora Cable TV

Cripes!!! I was shocked to read this morning about the purchase of Aurora Cable by Rogers.... I knew it was only a matter of time, once I saw the Rogers Digital bundles showing up at the Newmarket Best Buy over the holidays.The Aurora Cable folks claim that they are going out on top - and that Rogers had started to encroach on their territory, and it's likely true. But still. I love Aurora Cable. I love their internet, I miss their cable service (I have 5 months left on a satellite dish from Hell, and was counting the days to switch back to ACI)......What's most interesting about this article in the Post is the repetitive statements of *Silence on the Cogeco Front*..... For some reason, I would have thought that Mountain Cable would be a better fit for Rogers.... perhaps Cogeco has more synergies with Rogers than Mountain does? Imagine the complications in melding all their digital phone services...... ;-)Rogers buys Aurora Cable TV
