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…


Learn about Bill C-61

One of the least understood, yet most contentious issues of the Canadian election is going to be the political hopefuls' position on Bill C-61 - Copywrite Reform and Restrictions in Canada.
Unfortunately, most folks don't realize the implications this bill will have on their regular, daily lives. Implications on everything from what you can do with a movie you've bought, to how you can use your cell phone, your iPod or your computer. And don't even get me started on timeshifting or PVR'ing your favourite TV shows.

Ask your politician - what are they going to do about C-61? It's the main reason I can't vote for Harper.

Michael Geist has some AWESOME videos on the subject.
