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…


There's a Facebook App on my Blackberry


Research In Motion, maker of the BlackBerry, yesterday announced that the Facebook for BlackBerry application has surpassed the 1,000,000 download mark. That’s a lot of socializing happening on productivity devices.

If you’ve been following my adventures this week, you know I’ve become bonded with my new blackberry pearl. Yes, it’s a work phone (thank you, work!!)

Funnily enough, it came loaded with Facebook. That in itself is curious - work phone with social networking apps. But how did Facebook hit the jackpot? How did it get itself loaded on every new cell phone?Who decides these endeavours? It’s a sweet deal…. If you are facebook. Likely less of a sweet deal if you are another social media application.I’m waiting for my LinkedIn mobile app.
