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…


Short Commute - Long Wait

I thought it would have been easy - flying into Ottawa last Monday, and then out again on Wednesday. It wasn’t until the landing at Toronto was aborted at the last minute (the flight before me had hit a bird on the runway), that I realized it was likely easier to drive to Ottawa than fly every week.

It’s going to be almost 4 hours either way - flying or driving, which is a bit of a pain in the butt. But at least having a car takes away the airport hurry up and wait feeling. Plus - I could be on conference calls for the whole drive ;-)

When the landing was aborted at the last minute, a wave of resignation washed over me - I was convinced that the next stop was going to be right into the CN tower. How’s that for optimism? ;-)
