Skype Code cracked? Not a chance.

It is being reported that VoipWiki took a Skype call, from a reversed engineered client - produced by a Chinese company. This opens some interesting discussion points to say the least...

I just don't see how this is possible. The Skype guys (and left over KaZaA core) learned the lesson fron KaZaA lite. They aren't going to make that mistake again.

The Blogosphere is ripe with this story, if one thing is perfectly clear - Skype should be listening to the interest in this and recognize the opportunity to create a standard for VoIP communications on the web. Being closed is dangerous, everyone wants the protocol - why not work towards giving it to them?
