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…


Blurring The Lines: Socal Media Lives and Corporate Lives

With the adoption of social media and social networking applications among wide and various enclaves of the population, the lines are becoming blurred between social conversations and work conversations. Just this morning, I send work related items of interest to friends in Facebook. The other day I twittered about needing contacts at Bell. I'm also trying to find folks who might be live blogging the Canadian Telecom Summit, since work projects are going to keep me from attending in real life, but I don't want to miss some of the panels.

With work peers and friends all in the same network, it gets easier to share and build relationships even stronger than simple *work* friendships. There is an inherent hesitation to open up your real life to your work life. It's a slow and continual process, encouraging more folks to *catch the social media bug*....But without that sort of cross pollination, neither facet can live up to their full potential. I'm going to go bug my director on facebook now ;-)
