3 thoughts on “Rethinking Skype”

  1. I remember a posting here I which I suggested not underestimating Skype.

    Couldn’t help but say something about the router line though. So Skype is a directory service. The likes of it do compete with ENUM, etc. So it could (in theory) beat out ENUM. But routers don’t tell you where to go or even how to get there. They are just plain “dumb.” They move packets rather unknowingly as to whence they come and where they go.

    Some now do have a nifty new features the likes of which could be paraphrased as “no skype traffic shall passeth…” So they are dumb in the “oh-shucks” kinda way.
