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 Best Laid Plans: Canadian Wireless Auction

Ohh, I wonder what's keeping the folks at the CRTC up at night. Could it have anything to do with the fact that their darling Spectrum Auction has now raised upwards of $4B? Exciting stuff, if you don't take into account that the estimates were basically half that amount.

Now the CRTC has got to be realizing that they've created a monster, instead of trying to inject competition into Canada's wireless industry.
The poor buggers who actually win the different various frequencies around the country are going to be up to their eyeballs in debt. How's that for bringing down the cost of wireless services?
What could have been done differently?
