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…


Forget the Wallet, Bring Your Finger


TNS surveyed 4,500 consumers in Canada, the U.S., Britain, China, France, Germany, Japan and Spain in February. Forty-one per cent said biometric fingerprint identification has “high appeal.”

I would relish the idea of fingerprint scan instead of debit card.  The ease of it all, especially in this day and age when any greaseball can pop a card reader on a bank machine or debit reader and poof, all your savings are gone.   Just a few weeks ago, a friend of mine lost over $700, right in Ontario, because of a scam like this.  Fingerprint and PIN.   Easy as snapping your fingers.:-)
