The Official Skype Blog

We now have an official insider blog from Skype. I am sure Mr. Pryor (the man responsible for Microsoft bloggers) had his input and kudo's, for opening up the vault and getting more up close and personal with the users. Good work Jaanus.

Some early suggestions would be - guest article writers (I'll submit a few anytime) - internal milestones - new hires, offices opening etc., "celebrities on Skype watch", and of course, you absolutely must start Podcasting once a month with synopsis of everything that has happened, I will gladly facilitate guest speakers.

If Niklas, Lenn and others were to interview partners, discuss events etc., through a monthly podcast - it would be very well recieved and really help the medium continue to grow.

Crying while Eating

I love the internet, but every so often I have to pause and reflect on exactly what this neverending sharing of 1's and 0's, is all about.

Today was one of those days, "my main man in Amsterdam", sent this to me for review.

The question of "why?" begs to be asked.

Enjoy. (you need quicktime)

Jon's Phone Tool - a must have for Mac Skyper's

I stumbled across a great utility mentioned on Boris Mann's blog, a scriptable dialer for the Mac that supports bluetooth calling through your cell, with Vonage, CallVantage, Skype, Ovolab Phlink,Parliant’s PhoneValet, an Asterisk PBX server, IP-based telephony devices, or SIP softphones by Xten Networks, Inc.

I was also impressed to learn of a robust Mac Asterisk Community, which is very good news as well. You can sign up for a free SIP URI @
