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…


Filtering by Tag: Toronto Highschool Teacher Strike

Hey... That's Not in My Job Description...

Toronto high scholl teachers are threatening to strike because the schoolboard is asking them to do things that aren’t part of their union agreement…

Members of the OSSTF have been casting ballots all day to show their anger with the Board over attempts to get them to spend extra timepatrolling the hallways and doing other chores, a change in their contract that they insist is a matter of principle.



In real life, with regular jobs, you do MANY things that aren’t part of your job description. It sort of goes hand in hand with wanting to keep your job ;-)

A few things above and beyond any job description I’ve ever had:

  1. Dropping a router at a customer office.
  2. Picking UP a router at a customer office.
  3. Going to a customer’s home to set up their Mac for internet service.
  4. Creating a 40 page custom care procedure.

What have YOU done for your job that wasn’t part of the job?
