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…


Striker No Striking

Within less than 36 hours, all union folks are back to work in Toronto. Legislated, of course, which might be the same as  getting grounded by your parents. One might infer that the whole purpose of the strike was to scare the bejesus out of Toronto, and have the province pass legislation that would bring both parties back to the table under very auspicious circumstances. Of course, now the serious debate begins on whether or not the TTC is an essential service. I’d say that after the brou ha-ha that ensued this weekend, it’s hard not to consider it essential. Plus, if deemed an essential service, gone is the sting of the union. Technorati Tags: , ,
