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 Ongoing Silliness of the York Strike

Wow - day 79 of the strike. That's a record. I'm not even making that up.
I've managed to garner quite a traffic bump in writing about the mis-adventures of the York U teachers union and the strike that is leaving up to 50,000 students shut in the cold - literally.

If I was the president of some other local university, I'd be pulling together a VERY neat program to entice the York students to dump their waiting pose and move on over. I'd accept the York credits at face value, let them continue their degrees and heck, even cut them a deal on tuition if they sign up for the remainder of their post-secondary education.


Education is big business.
