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 Second Wave of LinkedIn

I’ve noticed in the past month that there’s been some considerable pickup to LinkedIn requests. More and more of my peers seem to be (finally) jumping into the LinkedIn pool. It’s a good sign.

Another good sign are the fantastic new features and applications that LinkedIn has instituted. The groups are great for connecting with people (when they aren’t full of odd spammy bits)… and I’m appreciating some of the blogging tools and RSS feeds as well….

It’s neat that they’ve incorporated some *facebooky* things as well, like status mesages. Still, it’s got a good grownup look and feel.

There’s a time and a place or Facebook, but LinkedIn is the grownup alternative ;-)

Anyone else seeing an influx of LinkedIn activity?
