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…


Plug In Cars: Just in Time

With gas prices hovering at $1.20/litre, it's a little tingly to read about what automakers are finally doing with cars, technology and the environment.  Today's Globe and Mail has a neat announcement about California pushing the industry into the 21st century - a la plug-in cars.It's a bold move - California mandating the minimum number of hybrid, or plugin cars that manufacturers have to have sold - starting 2012.By then, gas will be at $2.50/litre ... and we will be looking for some sort of respite in travel.
This week, auto parts maker Magna joined the race to build a plug-in hybrid and said it plans to have a prototype on the road next year or in 2010.
