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…


First Cattle, The Pigs... Up Next: Chickens

There's been a rash of livestock incidents in the GTA this spring.

A few weeks ago, cattle were loose on the 427.

Yesterday, pigs escaped on the 401.

I'm fully prepared for a chicken rig to flip on the 400 before we hit the Canada Day Weekend.

And why? It's not *all* driver error. Considering the laws of probability, and the number of livestock trucks traveling through the city, it's just a question of time before the chicken scenario occurs.

In January 2008, a chicken truck in Oregon spilled chickens all over the roadway.

I say again. Simply a matter of time. Imagine 200 chickens on the 400. Like a massive pillow fight. But much worse.
