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…


The Making of The Perfect Storm - Toronto Public Riots

Gas prices top $1.20/litre this morning.
Monday will see a TTC strike.

Could Tuesday erupt in city wide riots and revolts?
Could the people take to the streets en mass, in a wave of frustration and anger towards both government and the oil industry?

Are we too polite as Canadians, and will we just remain behind closed doors, writing insipid blog posts pontificating on the options.

Why are Canadian's paying $1.20 when there are LOADS of oil reserves in Alberta. Why are we paying $1.20 with the plethora of oil sitting in Newfoundland? Why is gas cheaper in Buffalo right now than it is in Toronto? Why is Canada being handcuffed by foreign multinational oil companies?

Forget about it. What do I know?
I'm going to work from home on Monday.
