To quote their website, "Skype is a little piece of software that lets you talk to anyone over the Internet for free". However, this barely scratches the surface of what the company offers. Phil Wolff, editor in chief of Skype Journal, joins Phil, Scott, and Ben to discuss the current state of Skype.
In addition to reviewing his background and what led him to Skype Journal, Wolff talks about how China is attempting to censor information sent over Skype and how residents work to get around it. He also describes Skype's architecture, how the technology is being used more and more by enterprises, and assesses the demographics of the typical user, as well as how Estonia was recently hit by a DDoS attack. Wolff also describes his idea for OpenCallerID and polls Phil and the group on a wishlist for Skype features.
