Why I like Skype

Next week my friend Eileen Tso Broch is moving from San Francisco to London to join Skype — the pioneering company that allows free telephone calls in a peer to peer system.

Skype was started by the founders of KaZaA and has received investment from Tim Draper, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Index Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners and Mangrove Capital Partners.

the tool works well — high quality sound and easy to use. you can make peer to peer calls for free anywhere in the world.

it still has a lot of bugs — and it needs the ability for you to take your profile (friends) with you to another computer (it would be great if i could log into an internet cafe in Dubai and make telephone calls to all my friends) — my profile on my laptop does not match my desktop.
