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…


Curious Facebook Stats - Canada

  1. I was thinking this morning that at any given time, there is only between 3% and 5% of my Facebook friends on-line.
  2. In Canada,  there are more female facebook (871,369) users in my demographic (35 - 44) than males (611,253).
  3. In Canada, in all age groups, there are 6,005,178 females.
  4. In Canada, in all age groups, there are 4,551,025 males. That's 25% more girls than boys. That's sort of curious. Te: hat precentage holds weight across all demographics.... always more girls than boys. I asked the Wiz about that rend this morning. His response: well of course. Girls share. Boys don't.
The stats get a little gray when you try to dig deeper, since most folks have some sort of application privacy enabled.... but of the friends in my list who share a bit of personal details:
  • 121 of them are female
  • 165 of them are male
  • 179 are married
  • 79 are aged 36 to 49
  • 239 are from Canada
  • 226 have no geographic info listed
I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming. Happy Friday!!
