NASA found water on the moon

All the buzz the past few days around the water cooler was the fact that NASA had found water on the moon. This scientific breakthrough does not mean that you will be seeing bottles of Moon Water showing up at a variety store near you any time soon. This news does tell us that at some point the moon could have sustained life or may eventually be colonized. When will the first Telsec office space on the moon be available, I can not say. While Telsec can not yet offer office space on the moon yet, they can offer a great office in downtown Toronto. No, they do not have moon water yet, but they do have cold filtered water available in both kitchens. It may be a number of years until Telsec can offer moon offices with a view of the earth, I can tell you that some clear sky evenings when I am wo...

Being only blocks south of the city core saves half an hour of commute

Today I left my home at the same time as my neighbor and we even took the same route right up until I turned south on Yonge Street to get to my downtown Toronto office space at 1 Yonge Street. I was in my office about 30 minutes when I remembered that I forgot to ask my neighbor if  I could borrow his electric leaf blower tonight. So I called his cell phone.  It seems that he had just arrived at his Toronto office space in the core of the city, he had been stuck in downtown traffic for 25 minutes. So being only blocks south of the city core saves half an hour of commute. My neighbor is an outside sales representative and works in a satellite office from the rest of the company, just so he can be near his downtown Toronto clients. The funny part of this story is that his biggest client is l...

Happy 40th Anniversary Sesame Street and Happy Birthday Big Bird

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Sesame Street. While the 40th anniversary show does not air until November 10th, Google is celebrating today by having Big Bird’s feet as its latest logo doodle. It took a while, but I noticed that the doodle looked a bit different than there usual themed doodles. Usually the letters are in the google themed order – blue, red, yellow, blue green red – but not this time all the letters are yellow in honour of big bird (whose feet are part of toadays logo). If it was not enough for First Lady Michelle Obama appears in the first episode of Sesame Street’s 40th season? Even United States President Barack Obama will be opening the show with a brief video. According to one news source I read, he will say the something like “Todays S...

A Quick Thinking Receptionist Saved me a Client

I tell my clients that I am not always in the office and that they should not just show up unannounced. Then you get that one client who thinks because they are in the area they can just show up.  I am not an office client at Telsec, I am a virtual office client. I will sometimes use a boardroom or meeting room there, but for the most part my office is at home. Yesterday an out of town client flew into Toronto via Porter Air (at my recommendation), he figured that since my office was so close to the city centre airport that he could stop by before he went to his primary meeting. When he arrived at my office, the receptionist quickly realized that I was a virtual office client and told him I was not in the office at that time. She then called me on my cell phone and told me someone had show...

Zombies on the streets of Toronto

This past weekend after visiting a photography client of mine in the west end of Toronto, I headed down to my downtown office space.  While en route I found that some of the downtown roadways were blocked. This is nothing new in Toronto, there are always festivals and events that have some streets blocked off or closed for cultural events or charity fund raisers like the Toronto Marathon. What was unusual about this traffic obstruction was that it was a parade of the un dead. Yes, zombies had taken over the streets of Toronto. After watching the parade of zombies, I continued on my way to my shared office space. It is not often that I see the other people who share the office with me, as my schedule and theirs are often very different. But when I do see them in the early morning hours at t...

Travel to you office by green transportation

Do you travel to you office by green transportation? Have you ever truly wanted to travel to your downtown Toronto office by the ultimate green transportation? While taking public transit is green, bicycling to the office is the truly green way to get to your office. Some downtown office spaces can offer you, but only Telsec Toronto office space can offer a major bicycle route like the Martin Goodman Trail just outside the front door-a bicycle route like no other, an asphalt mostly off-road trail.  The Martin Goodman Trail is part of the 730 kilometre Waterfront Trail that connects 41 communities from Niagara to Quebec along the Canadian Shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. It was named in memory of the former President and Editor-in-Chief of the Toronto Star who passed away ...

You’ve Got Mail, but from whom?

When you open a Toronto mail service account or a virtual office Toronto account that includes a prestigious mailing address in a Downtown Toronto office space building, your mail is held for you or redirected to you on a weekly basis. If it is convenient to visit the office once or twice a week, keeping up on your mail is easy to keep track of your mail. If you getting a large sum of mail on a weekly basis and have it re directed, it can become quite a chore to sort out. Too often these days most of our postal mail is junk mail and un-solicited offers to do business. The mail we do want like cheques and  contracts seem to get buried in the pile of mail we recieve. While most of our mail is not of an urgent matter, often times there is mail we want ASAP. When mail is delivered to Telsec...

Office Appearance – From a Client’s Perspective

I was recently asked by a friend to attend a meeting with them and to share my technical knowledge. My friend was considering making a substantial investment in a upstart business that claimed they were quite successful  and had  hundreds of potential clients visiting their offices every week.  After seeing their office, I wanted to know how many clients took them seriously. The office I visited was in the basement of a building whose main floor client was a noisy restaurant with wooden floors. I could hear every foot step from the floor above.  After a 30 minute meeting my client and I emerged from the meeting. The client asked me what was my opinion.  Before I gave my opinion to my client, I asked them what they thought of the space we just had the meeting in. They told me that it was qu...
